The Organization uses a third-party service provider, Blackbaud, to manage its donor and organization data, and to communicate with various members of its community. On July 16, 2020, the Organization received a notice from Blackbaud reporting that it had discovered and stopped a ransomware attack. However, prior to locking the cybercriminal out, the cybercriminal took a copy of the Organization?s backup file, which contained certain individuals? personal information. This occurred at some point beginning on February 7, 2020 until May 20, 2020. Blackbaud advised the Organization that it paid a financial demand in exchange for confirmation from the attackers that the extracted information was destroyed.
