REDMOND, OR -- The Redmond School District notified teachers and staff, Monday, of a massive data breach that led to a scammer receiving the personal information for all employees, including names, Social Security numbers, and addresses.

 

The scammer posed as Superintendent Mike McIntosh in an e-mail requesting all W-2 forms from the district office on Friday, February 24. Employees were told of the breech by e-mail. They were told to contact their bank and change account passwords on debit and credit cards, as a precaution. The email also suggests adding additional security measures to employees' district G-Mail account. 
 
In the e-mail, Superintendent McIntosh says, "The school district takes this incident very seriously and protecting you from identity theft is our top priority. Once discovered this morning [Monday], we immediately contacted the police and appropriate authorities to investigate the breach and minimize risk from the disclosure. An investigation is underway and we are taking steps to prevent future incidents."
 
A district official tells KBND News there is no risk to students or the public at large; they refused further comment.
