Personal data of more than 2,000 Sonoma County agency clients could be exposed – NBC Bay Area

The personal data of 2,347 clients at three Sonoma County agencies may have been exposed during a breach of a county subcontractor’s network, county officials said Wednesday.

A ransomware attack in August on the Seneca Family of Agencies network may have exposed vital personal data, including names, social security numbers, addresses, phone numbers, diagnostic and treatment information, said the count.

Seneca provides mental health, counseling, and family engagement services to the County Social Services Department, Health Services Department, and Probation Department.

The county said there was no evidence that customers’ personal data was misused as a result of the breach, but as a precaution, Seneca is notifying customers in the county whose data was stored on its network.

The county’s computer systems were not attacked or compromised during the incident. The county took immediate action to secure customer data when it was made aware of the breach.

Seneca offers those potentially affected 12 months of free credit monitoring and identity protection services. To register, customers can call (855) 675-2841 Monday through Friday (except US statutory holidays), 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
