Louisville Metro recently discovered an incident that may affect the security of personal information stored within our environment.  This notice is meant to provide information about the incident, steps taken since discovering the incident, and information on what potentially affected individuals  can do to better protect against the possibility of identity theft and fraud.

A computer used by two Assistant County Attorneys was recently stolen from the Louisville Hall of Justice.  The computer, about the size of a book, was located in a publicly accessible conference room and not secured to the table it was stationed on.  After the theft was reported, Louisville Metro launched an internal investigation and retained third-party forensic experts to determine what information may have been stored on the hard drive at the time of the theft.  Though the computer was later recovered, the hard drive had been removed.  The investigation determined that the emails of the two attorneys may have been saved locally to the hard drive.

Though Louisville Metro has no evidence that the data contained on the hard drive was subject to unauthorized access, on April 19, 2017 Louisville Metro discovered that certain personal information was contained within the email account of one of the attorneys.  While we are unaware of any actual of attempted misuse of this information, in an abundance of caution, we are providing notice of this incident.  The information stored on the computer and potentially subject to unauthorized access included some individuals’ names, Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and driver’s license numbers.
