What Happened at Raptor?

On January 11, 2024, Wired reported on a data breach involving an unsecured database at Raptor Technologies. Raptor has confirmed the data security incident and if they confirm that the leaked data contains confidential information of individuals, they will begin sending out data breach notification letters to all individuals whose information was affected.

According to third-party research, over 4 million records relating to the Texas-based Raptor Technologies were allegedly compromised by a data security incident. The records contain what appears to be sensitive information relating to students, teachers, parents, and school safety plans or procedures. An investigation is ongoing and it is currently unknown how long the database was exposed or who accessed the data.

What Sensitive Data is Compromised?

  • Documents such as school maps, camera locations, security vulnerabilities, meeting points, and step-by-step actions of emergency response plans could be leaked
  • Court Records: restraining or protection orders. Divorce and custody documents that may contain PII of parents and children, including Social Security numbers
  • Health Records that could contain names, addresses, birth dates, or insurance details
  • School incident response plans, layouts of schools or classrooms, and notes regarding infrastructure challenges, such as malfunctioning cameras or security issues
  • Background check systems (including names)

  • PDF files or images of court-ordered protection orders, divorce decrees, and other legal documents
