On Friday, April 6, North Bay Regional Center was notified by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) of a possible data breach of personal health information as a result of forced entry and vandalism of one of their secure office locations on February 11, 2018. DDS has been working closely with state officials and law enforcement to investigate this incident.

While there is no evidence that any information has been compromised, accessed, stolen or removed from the site, it is out of an overabundance of caution that they are notifying individuals served and the public about the incident. A notification letter from DDS Director Nancy Bargmann outlining the details of the breach and steps being taken to support those who have concerns regarding their personal data can be found on the DDS website.

Please know that NBRC is in regular contact with the DDS on this matter and will notify our community immediately if there are any further developments to this issue. Information about the data breach and who you can contact for more information can be found in the DDS notification letter.
