Updated March 15: This incident was reported to HHS on March 3 as affecting 35,068 health plan members, so it likely included former employees as well as current ones.  DPS’s notice can be found on their website.

Personal information belonging to some 15,000 Denver Public Schools (DPS) employees was stolen in what the district is calling a “cybersecurity incident” that went on for a month.

In a message shared on the DPS website Friday, DPS said employees discovered in January that data had been taken from the district’s network by an “unauthorized actor.”


The information stolen included the names and Social Security numbers of current and former participants in the DPS employee health plan, employee fingerprints, bank account numbers or pay card numbers, driver’s license numbers, passport numbers and health plan enrollment information.
