Security Breach At IL Dept. of Corrections
« on: August 18, 2015, 09:21:41 AM »
Security breach at the IL Dept. of Corrections


The Illinois Department of Corrections was made aware of a security breach within the department on Friday, August 14th.

More than 1,000 of its employee’s Social Security Numbers were included in a response to a civilian FOIA request, along with their names, ranks, salaries, and job duties.

IDOC sincerely apologizes for the release of this personal information and are working to remedy the situation.

At this time, there is no indication that the information has been misused.

IDOC is in the process of notifying the impacted employees and will be available to assist them with any questions they may have.

Since the breach was discovered, IDOC has undertaken an investigation of the incident.

We are also reviewing our internal policies and procedures and will make necessary adjustments to prevent similar incidents in the future.

I heard this on the news, it's one thing to be hacked but for someone from the inside to let this happen..  :wc13:
