No Upcoming Events
The Wayne County Board of Developmental Disabilities experienced an unauthorized access of our data networks, which was discovered on June 21, 2019. The intent of the intrusion was to run a ransomware program and encrypt data for the purpose of extorting money from the Board. While it is believed no files were transmitted from our networks, the intruders may have had the opportunity to view files containing Protected Health Information (PHI) for some individuals receiving services. Some of the types of PHI potentially viewed may have include names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, goals and objectives for the various services funded by the Board. They may also have contained other PHI such as medical diagnosis, medications, treatment plans, Medicaid numbers and Social Security numbers (although very rarely). As a result, the Board is sending notification letters to those potentially affected. If you have previously received services from the Wayne County Board of Developmental Disabilities, did not receive a notification letter, and have concerns you potentially may be affected by the breach, please contact us to discuss your options. We may be reached at (330)345-6016 or toll free 1-800-323-6133, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM.
