Metro Louisville employee information possibly at risk in data breach

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Personal information for more than 10,000 current and past Louisville Metro government employees may have been compromised in a data breach.

The city sent those people an email Tuesday that said employees with Humana Choice, Balanced Choice and Managed Choice insurance are possibly at risk.

They can expect a letter from a Humana data vendor, Medical Informatics Engineering, with details in a few days.

The breach involves data on an MIE server, including names, home and email addresses, birthdates and Social Security numbers. It does not involve medical, financial or credit card information, said Chris Poynter, spokesman for Mayor Greg Fischer.

Metro government first learned of the breach Friday. It does not include any city server, the email said. 

MIE is offering two years of a credit monitoring service to those affected.

MIE has a hotline open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday at (866) 328-1987. More information is available on the MIE website.
