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) 524‑8800 ext. 199.
