MI: Wayne County sends out email blast containing some 1300 names and social security numbers

Michael Rosenfield reports on yet another e-mail attachment error (there seems to have been a bunch of them recently):

The personal information of some 1300 Wayne County employees is compromised after an email mistake by the county’s Department of Personnel/Human Resources.

A spreadsheet containing the data was mistakenly attached to an email about health insurance. The email went out on Friday to members of AFSCME Locals 25, 409, 1659 and 3309.

“It’s outrageous,” says county employee Matthew Fiems. “It’s very stressful, very frustrating.”

The attachment contained names, employee ID numbers, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses and other information.

As of the time of this posting, there’s no press release on the county’s web site.
