Golden Entertainment, Inc. Health and Welfare Plan ("Golden Entertainment") takes seriously the confidentiality and security of our employees' information. Regrettably, this notice is to inform our employees of a recent incident that may have involved some of their health insurance information.
On August 23, 2019, we learned that an unauthorized individual may have obtained access to an employee's email account which may have contained some enrollment information for participants in Golden Entertainment's health insurance plan. The unauthorized access occurred between May 30, 2019 and July 31, 2019. Golden Entertainment conducted a comprehensive review of the contents of the email account and determined that an email or an attachment to an email in the email accounts contained some employee information pertaining to their health insurance, which may have included employees' names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and information regarding health insurance through Golden Entertainment.
We have no indication that any employees' personal information has been accessed or misused. However, in an abundance of caution, we began mailing letters to employees whose information was involved on October 22, 2019, and established a dedicated call center to answer questions that employees may have. We are also offering employees whose Social Security number was involved complementary credit monitoring and identity protection services. If you believe your information was involved and do not receive a letter by December 1, 2019, please call 1-844-996-1027, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
We sincerely regret any concern or inconvenience this incident may cause our employees. To help prevent something like this from happening in the future, we are taking steps to further enhance the organization's data security procedures.
