In July 2021, Welfare & Pension Administration Service (WPAS) discovered that their computer network was infected with malware that encrypted certain files. WPAS is a third-party administration firm specializing in multi-employer benefit plan administration. It is responsible for a large amount of client data, much of which may have been compromised in the malware attack.

The subsequent WPAS data breach investigation confirmed that certain files may have been accessed or stolen from their systems without authorization. Over 211,000 individuals may be impacted by the Welfare & Pension Administration Service security breach, with names and Social Security numbers potentially leaked.
