Thousands affected by cyberattack at Confederation Center

The Confederation Center Box Office in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

The personal data of approximately 3,000 individuals was compromised in a cyber attack targeting the Confederation Center of the Arts in Prince Edward Island.

This ransomware case arose on January 25, but details of the investigation were only released this week.

The investigation revealed that personal contact details, such as emails and dates of birth, have been disclosed to a third party whose identity is unknown.

“When the incident occurred, we immediately sought legal advice and experts to help us investigate and mitigate the damage.

— Jodi Zver, Chief Financial Officer of Confederation Center

According to Jodi Zver, Chief Financial Officer of Confederation Center, the Privacy Commissioner of the island was notified when the cyberattack occurred.

The entertainment center ensures that the data of the ticket office and its payroll system were not affected by cyberattack.

The Confederation Center of the Arts says that the security of its servers has been tightened to prevent this type of attack from happening again.

We now have more robust data backup procedures, she explains.

Anyone whose data has been compromised has already been contacted by the institution.< /p>

The email is from [email protected] and contains detailed instructions on what to do, says Jodi Zver.

For the sake of caution, the center offered credit monitoring and protection insurance to people whose information might have been accessed.
