Hill AFB employee personal info improperly transmitted

Mitch Shaw reports:

More than 500 Hill Air Force Base employees had sensitive personal information compromised after another base employee improperly transmitted the information to an unprotected email address.

In early July, a base administrative employee was working with data that contained the names and Social Security numbers of hundreds of base employees.

The employee, who is not being identified by the Air Force, sent the information to a personal email account to finish work at home — a move that violated base, Air Force and Department of Defense policy.

After learning of the improper transmittal, Hill notified 525 base employees who were affected by the incident though a letter sent by John C. Cullinane, director of Hill’s 75th Force Support Squadron.
