Black­baud Secu­ri­ty Breach of KYC Donor Data

Ken­neth Young Cen­ter recent­ly received noti­fi­ca­tion that Black­baud, a third-par­ty data secu­ri­ty firm that hosts our data­base sys­tem for dona­tions and giv­ing to KYC, had a cyber secu­ri­ty breach in May. This sys­tem is entire­ly sep­a­rate from our med­ical health records, which were not impact­ed in any way. 

Accord­ing to Black­baud, they were able to pre­vent access to any encrypt­ed or sen­si­tive infor­ma­tion, like cred­it card num­bers or bank­ing infor­ma­tion. They have report­ed that the cyber­crim­i­nal did not dis­perse and destroyed any infor­ma­tion that they did have in their pos­ses­sion. You can read more about the Black­baud inci­dent here.

Pri­va­cy is deeply impor­tant to us at KYC and although pri­vate infor­ma­tion like bank­ing and cred­it card num­bers were not impact­ed, in an abun­dance of cau­tion and in keep­ing with our com­mit­ment to trans­paren­cy, we want­ed to share news of this sit­u­a­tion. As always, please be vig­i­lant in mon­i­tor­ing all per­son­al accounts and report any irreg­u­lar­i­ties immediately. 

We rec­og­nize the trust you put into us as a part­ner and we are so thank­ful for your sup­port of KYC. If you have any ques­tions about this inci­dent, please con­tact Kate Gar­barek, Direc­tor of Devel­op­ment and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, at (847) 5248800 ext. 199.
