On December 16, 2013 an employee of the Organization notified a supervisor of the potential misuse of personal information by a co-worker. Upon learning of the incident, the Organization investigated and also notified the United States Secret Service. The investigation found that databases containing the information at issue had been accessed by three Human Resources (HR) employees for fraudulent purposes. The three HR employees were arrested on allegations of unlawful use of personal information. The Organization believes the unauthorized access may have started on or around February 7, 2011 (the date of hire for the longest serving of the three employees).
