Atlas MedStaff LLC (“Atlas”) writes to inform you of an incident that may affect the privacy of some of your information. Although Atlas is unaware of any actual or attempted misuse of your information, Atlas is providing you notice of the incident, steps Atlas is taking in response, and resources available to help you better protect your information, should you feel it is appropriate to do so.
On or about October 21, 2021, Atlas experienced a data security incident that impacted its computer systems and caused a temporary disruption to services. We promptly worked to secure our systems and, with the assistance of third-party forensic specialists, commenced an investigation to confirm the nature and scope of the incident. The investigation determined that Atlas was the victim of a sophisticated cyberattack and that between October 15, 2021 and October 21, 2021, an unauthorized actor may have accessed and/or acquired a limited amount of data stored on our systems. A comprehensive and time-consuming review of the affected data was subsequently performed to determine whether it contained any sensitive information and to identify potentially affected individuals. On July 13, 2022, we concluded this review and determined that your information was in the files that may have been accessed or acquired without authorization.
What Information Was Involved?
As indicated above, Atlas is unaware of any actual or attempted misuse of your personal information. However, we are providing you with this notification out of an abundance of caution.
