Independent Counselling Enterprises Inc.

The Organization reported that an employee accessed confidential wage information of 4 management employees. The employee allegedly obtained unauthorized access to the information using a password provided to him by another employee. The Organization?s IT contractor reviewed the computers of the two employees allegedly involved. A search of the first employee?s computer confirmed he had attempted to access several computer files including financial files. No evidence was found that the financial files were opened or compromised. It also does not appear that any other employee information was compromised. The incident was discovered on April 24, 2017, when a client of the Organization reported that the employee had disclosed the information of the 4 employees to the client. There is evidence that the employee?s conduct began in 2015 and continued up to and including April 17, 2017.
