Calgary House of Cars 6 Inc.

On December 7, 2020, the Organization discovered that intruder(s) gained access to their office and seized a desktop computer, as well as hard copies of certain files. The computer is password-protected and is being monitored via the Organization?s system. The Organization reported that it would be necessary for any illicit user to hack the device’s password as well as several further levels of encrypted software in order to access information on the system; further, all relevant passcodes were changed. The Organization reported that since it is dependent largely upon a hard-copy filing system, the amount of personal information accessible through the computer, even if successfully hacked, is small. As of the date of the breach report, the intruders have not yet been apprehended and the computer has not been activated or used to log on to the system.
