E-mail gaffe exposed Ruby Tuesday employee financial data to a former employee

An e-mail gaffe by a Support Center employee Ruby Tuesday exposed current employees’ information to a former employee.

The spreadsheet, inadvertently attached to the July 8 e-mail, contained employees’ names, Social Security numbers, bank name, bank account type, bank account numbers and routing numbers.

Ruby Tuesday immediately tried to recall the e-mail, and contacted the recipient who confirmed deletion of the e-mail.  All of those whose information was in the spreadsheet were contacted by phone and then in writing.  All those notified were offered free credit monitoring services for a year.
