On December 17, 2019, PSL Services discovered suspicious activity in an employee's email account.

PSL Services immediately launched an investigation into the nature and scope of the incident.

As part of the investigation, which is being conducted with the assistance of a third party forensic specialist, it was determined that a number of PSL Services' employees' email accounts were subject to unauthorized access for periods of time between December 16, 2019 and December 19, 2019.

Therefore, PSL Services is undertaking a time consuming review of the contents of the email accounts that were accessed to determine if they contain sensitive information.

PSL Services determined that the type of information potentially at risk may vary by individual and that the following types of information could be impacted: name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, Driver's license number, medical information and Maine Care number.
