It depends on what "personal information" you gave them. If it included passwords, change them. If charge cards, ask the card company to put the card on hold and issue you a new card. Think about what information they have and what could be done with it.

Also, if it's financial information, check your credit report regularly for the next several months/a year to make sure no one has used your information to open new accounts.
