City Attorney Grant Langley says his office is still working on the formal
complaint the city plans to file with the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services accusing Froedert Health and Dynacare Laboratories of a
security breach involving the personal information of thousands of city
Langley spoke shortly after the city's Finance and Personnel Committee met
in closed session on Wednesday afternoon. The meeting was held to discuss
possible litigation against either Froedtert or Dynacare or both.
The data breach involved Dynacare, which works with Froedtert Community
Health/Workforce Health to operate the city's wellness program. Dynacare
told city officials Nov. 15 that a car owned by a Dynacare employee was
stolen overnight on Oct. 21-Oct. 22, and reported stolen Oct. 22.
The car contained a flash drive with the personal information of 9,414
city employees, their spouses and domestic partners.
The personal information included the names, addresses, dates of birth,
Social Security numbers and gender of an estimated 6,000 city employees.
