WRIGHT COUNTY, MN – The following news release was issued Wednesday by Wright County officials:
A Wright County employee was found to have transferred private data to his home without authorization and in violation of county policy.
Based upon the investigation conducted by the county, no evidence has been found that indicates there was any sale or distribution of the private data. The data was recovered and returned to the county by law enforcement.
Since government agencies are held to a high standard for data protection, Wright County officials notified individuals because they felt citizens had a right to know this transpired – even though the data is back in the county’s possession.
Employees are required to complete multiple trainings about protecting citizen data annually, and the county has several policies in place. This unfortunate decision by one individual to not follow policy has triggered this notification effort.
While the policy investigation is complete, a criminal investigation related to this employee’s actions is ongoing.
A company that specializes in data notification has been hired by Wright County to handle notifications and requests. Citizens are asked to use these resources to request further information:
Toll free information line: 866-680-3212.
Address for information:
Wright County Data Incident-6354
PO BOX 44
Minneapolis, MN 55440-0044
Individuals who did not get a letter from the county did not have data accessed in this incident.
