ME: Washington county leaders looking into events surrounding leak of social security data

Mike DeSumma reports:

Circumstances surrounding the leak of personnel data for dozens of current and former Washington county employees continues to dominate discussion here. County leaders say for a period of hours earlier this month the date of births and social security numbers for more than 50 workers were accidentally available for anyone to see on the internet.

Those listed in the documents — which were hyper-linked to a Bangor Daily News Article published on April 7, 2014 — included past sheriffs deputies at the Washington County Sheriffs Office as well as many others who still work in law enforcement. Some of those employees still work for the county and are now left asking what went wrong.
