Information on Cyber Incident

We regret to announce that the Catholic Charities North Dakota was the victim of a cyber incident where our email system was hacked and accessed during February 2021.  Once the breach was formally detected on or about February 19, 2021, we retained cyber counsel and forensic experts to investigate, remediate, and restore all email operations to a safe and secure mode.  At this time we have no evidence that any data accessed from our email system has been fraudulently used by any unauthorized person.  We have taken enhanced security measures to protect the system going forward.  Based on this incident, there may be potential exposure of our client’s personal information including social security numbers and personal health information.  Our investigation is still determining the scope of any information exposure, and once completed we will be sending mail notifications to any persons with sensitive information exposed, in compliance with all regulations. Meanwhile, if you have any questions about your specific information, you can email us at privacyofficer@catholiccharitiesnd.org or contact us toll free at 1-800-450-4457.  We value your trust in our organization and we are doing everything possible to prevent any future exposure and keep your personal information safe.
