two employees had been breached.

on February “that an unknown individual had gained access to an email account
belonging to a People Inc. employee,” according to an alert.

forensics firm to investigate.

Inc. learned that an email account belonging to a second employee may have been
impacted as well. That account is no longer operational.,” People Inc.
said. “On April 11, 2019, as a result of this investigation, People Inc.
