Sun Prairie, Wis. warns of data breach after intruder accesses employee email accounts

For nearly two months this year, an unauthorized party had illegitimate access to the email accounts of certain employees working for the city of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

These accounts contained sensitive data such as Social Security numbers, account logins and passwords, drivers’ licenses, state identification numbers, bank and financial account numbers, medical information and payment card information.

“The City undertook a lengthy and labor-intensive process to identify the personal information contained in the affected email accounts,” said a press release issued yesterday by the city of roughly 30,000. “While the investigation was unable to confirm what, if any, information that was accessed within the affected email accounts, the City is notifying individuals in an abundance of caution because we have confirmed that certain information was present in the affected email accounts.”
