VRS INFORMATION SECURITY INCIDENT
VBREA was contacted by the City of Virginia Beach Finance Department regarding an information security incident that allowed an unauthorized third party to access or acquire data from servers that included VRS. They have asked us to share this information with our members. This same information has been emailed to all VBREA members who have provided us with a valid email address. The letter CVB received is below detailing the incident. PBI Research Services began mailing letters to those affected by this incident on August 1.
