The My Life Foundation is dedicated to increasing the quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities. The foundation’s website states, “We believe that the people we provide services to have a great value to our community and can teach us about ourselves, our spiritual life and give us greater insight into a bigger picture of life.”
“My team and I suspected that a former employee, Tim DeHaven, and then-current employee, Erik Duzell, Sr., were conspiring to steal company files from My Life Foundation,” wrote the organization’s president, David Bunker. “We hired a third-party cyber security company and outside counsel to determine the nature and scope of the incident and obtain a court order to return all of the employee information.”
The breach occurred when a former and current employee teamed up to deliver sensitive information to an unauthorized third party. The duplicity was confirmed when the organization found the text messages of the thief. Enclosed were explicit mentions of the conspiracy.
This breach occurred on September 1, 2021.
The breach impacts My Life employees. The foundation has assured customers that the breach involved none of their information.
The My Life Foundation has yet to release the exact number of how many employees who were affected. However, we know that the data included full names, social security numbers, phone numbers, bank account numbers, personal addresses, and more.
