People Inc. reports data security breach involving clients' personal info

People Inc. said it was the target of a data security breach that involved protected health information of some of its current and former clients.

People Inc. learned that two employees' email accounts were breached and their emails contained personal information about clients, including names, addresses, Social Security numbers, financial account information, medical information, health insurance information and driver's license or other government identification numbers.

The nonprofit human service agency said Wednesday it notified those individuals who might be affected and is offering them complimentary identity protection services through Experian. Clients who think they may qualify for this assistance can contact the People Inc. call center at 855-579-3669.

People Inc. said it has uncovered no evidence that any of the personal information contained in those email accounts has been accessed or misused, but it has reported the incident to the FBI and will cooperate with any investigation.
