Former Chicago Public Schools Contractor Steals Personnel Data
EDUCATION INDUSTRY

Kristi Sims, a former contractor who handled administrative tasks for the Office of Safety and Security at Chicago Public Schools, was arrested last Thursday after stealing information of 80,000 employees, volunteers, and vendors from a database. Sims was terminated by the contractor who employed her, but the contractor did not remove her access to the Board of Education’s Google Drive account. She then stole information including names, employee ID numbers, phone numbers, addresses, dates of birth, criminal arrest histories, and Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) data. She is also suspected of deleting targeted files from the database after stealing them.
