Some Erie County OCY cases part of statewide data breach

Kevin Flowers has more on a breach recently noted on this site:

Officials with the Erie County Office of Children and Youth said that fewer than 30 Erie County children had their identities compromised as part of a recent data security breach involving a third-party vendor that affected approximately 1,800 child welfare cases statewide.

The data breach was discovered in May and involved what is known as Child Accounting and Profile System databases maintained by Avanco International, a Fairfax, Virginia-based company that specializes in software integration, contracting and consulting for federal, state and local governments.

The information has since been removed from the Internet.
