Feds Notify Ohio Police Departments of Breach

Feds Informed Wooster-Ashland Regional Council of Governments of Security Breach

A breach recently hit the Wooster-Ashland Regional Council of Governments (WARCOG).  According to WKYC News, the FBI informed the Ohio police departments of the leak on Wednesday.  Unfortunately, the exact number of people impacted by the breach is uncertain.  However, officials are reporting, WARCOG is offering free credit reporting services for all individual impacted.  They are also adding additional protocols and controls to mitigate the risk of future breaches.  Perhaps, these protocols will include IT training on identifying when data is leaving the facility unauthorized…

Sounds brash, but true.  It’s quite bizarre the FBI was the one to report the breach, and the local IT department had no idea.
