    BB disclosed in their 8K filing that:

    "After July 16, further forensic investigation found that for some of the notified customers, the cybercriminal may have accessed some unencrypted fields intended for bank account information, social security numbers, usernames and/or passwords. In most cases, fields intended for sensitive information were encrypted and not accessible."


    This may be relevant to your organization in determining its notice requirements and other aspects of its response and security posture going forward. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    Thanks, Isaac. Blackbaud contacted our organization to say that SSNs that had been stored in Education Edge, which we no longer use, may have been accessed by the cybercriminal. It's taken me days to try to find current addresses and emails for the alumni who were affected. And we're having to spend money on a special mailing. We are not pleased, and this article makes me even wary and upset.
