Passaic Housing Authority battles employee over data breach, rules on rent hikes

Nicholas Katzban reports:

An internal investigation by the Passaic Housing Authority has named employee Linda Colon as the suspected source of last month’s data breach, which the authority said compromised the personal information of 50 to 60 public housing residents.

But Colon has not been charged with any crime, and says the documents involved in the alleged leak are evidence in her lawsuit against the Housing Authority. She claims the authority failed to notify residents of rent increases in a timely manner, violating internal regulations and rules of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
