Some Kanawha County employees receive data breach notices after ComplyRight breach

Rick Steelhammer reports:

Some Kanawha County employees whose health insurance coverage is issued through the county may have had personal information accessed during a data breach of the website of a cloud-based human resources servicing firm.

Florida-based ComplyRight, which offers an array of HR-related data services to small businesses and government organizations, informed Kanawha County officials on Thursday that unauthorized access to its website had occurred, according to Kanawha County Attorney Marc Slotnick.

That breach, according to a notification from ComplyRight, resulted “in the compromise of personal information,” which could include names, addresses, Social Security numbers and email addresses.
