Numotion has recently notified certain customers of the Colorado Springs, Colorado branch that their individual information may have been impacted by a break-in at that branch location.
On March 24, 2019, a break-in occurred at our Colorado Springs branch office. Among the items stolen were eight laptop computers used by branch employees to access patient information, and laptop bags with some route sheets and service work order documents. The information saved on the laptops is not easily accessible. Of the eight laptops stolen, all were password protected and only two were not equipped with full disk encryption. We do not believe any financial information or social security numbers were on the stolen laptops or documents.
