Bangor Mental Health Provider Details Extent of Hackers' Data Breach

Apr 25, 2017

More than 4,000 clients of a Bangor mental health provider may have had their personal information stolen through a data breach last month. 

A spokesman for Behavioral Health Center, David Farmer, says the compromised data includes Social Security numbers and notes on services they received. 

"Some of those clients were in files that were vulnerable, but there's no evidence of access," Farmer says. "But we are treating them all the same, and providing the same level of protection to everyone just in case."

Farmer says Behavioral Health Center is providing a credit monitoring service for affected clients for the next 12 months. 

Since the breach in March, Farmer says the practice has also tightened its cyber security, and notified appropriate government agencies about the incident.
