On or about September 12, 2017, Securadyne discovered that it had become the target of a phishing email campaign and that several employees had clicked on the phishing email and entered their credentials. Securadyne immediately took steps to secure the employees' email accounts and launched an in-depth investigation to determine whether any sensitive information was accessed or acquired. Securadyne subsequently determined, with the help of outside computer forensic investigators, that an unknown actor had gained access to the Securadyne employees' email accounts. On November 7, 2017, Securadyne determined, after a lengthy programmatic and manual review of the contents of the email accounts, the types of protected information contained in the email accounts and to which individuals the information relates, and immediately launched a review of its files to ascertain address information for the impacted individuals.
