In a series of news tips form industry sources to the Daily Business News, a new staffer, David Townsend, MHI Vice President, Finance and Administration, is alerting members that MHI staffer Jenny Hodge’s email has been compromised.
The Arlington, VA based trade group are issuing a specific warning to the industry. Do not open specific emails from Jenny Hodge, who is the vice president for the National Communities Council (NCC), and does research for MHI as well. See the screen capture of the MHI message below.
Sources say the discussion of how best to address this email breach is an issue that was been brewing at MHI for about a day, before they sent the above alert.
Data and email breaches can happen to organizations of all sizes, including the federal government.
The ‘news’ here is that MHI took, per reports, a day before advising the industry that they appear to have had one of their email accounts compromised.
There is also an unstated – for today – implication to this story, which will be dealt with in a separate, future report. Stay tuned. ## (News, analysis, commentary.)
