JFS Statement Re: Blackbaud Data Security Incident

JFS was recently informed of a recent security incident at Blackbaud, our financial and fundraising technology provider, that may have involved the personal information of  JFS supporters. The ransomware attack at Blackbaud impacted many nonprofit organizations nationwide and internationally and was not an isolated incident at JFS of San Diego. The privacy and security of the information the community entrusts with JFS is of our utmost importance—this issue is very serious to us.

Blackbaud has confirmed that the cybercriminals did not access or obtain credit card information, social security numbers, usernames, passwords, or bank account information.

The data that was taken was confirmed to have been destroyed. Blackbaud has determined that the destroyed data contained donor name and contact information, and may have also included telephone numbers, email addresses, and mailing addresses; and a brief history of donors’ relationships with JFS up to that point, such as donation dates and giving amounts.

With the safety of your information as our highest priority, JFS has formed an internal workgroup to continue our communication with Blackbaud and learn more about the incident in question. We are also working with Blackbaud to ensure that they are taking the necessary action to prevent future incidents.
