The April 2023 Security Incident

Between April 18 and April 23, 2023, WebTPA Employer Services, LLC experienced unauthorized access to certain systems within their network. This incident was first detected on December 28, 2023, when suspicious activity prompted an immediate investigation. WebTPA engaged leading third-party cybersecurity experts to assess and mitigate the situation, alongside notifying federal law enforcement.

The investigation revealed that an unauthorized actor might have accessed and potentially obtained personal information during the specified dates in April. The company has since taken extensive measures to secure the network and prevent future breaches.
