Potential breach notification

Dear Encompass staff and clients

On 6/15/2017 Encompass Community Services was the victim of a fraudulent email that allowed an outside party to gain access to staff email accounts which contained client information. Although the target of the attack was staff credentials to access payroll information, it is possible that client protected health information was exposed to the attackers for a short period of time. The Encompass Community Services IT Department was able to contain the threat quickly and ensure no further unauthorized access took place.

Although the target of the attack appeared to be internal staff, we encourage you to monitor your credit score through a free credit score provider like www.creditkarma.com for signs of identity theft.

If you have any question or need additional information please contact Encompass Quality Officer at qiofficer@encompasscs.org
