The Nature Camp Foundation takes your privacy seriously and we appreciate the trust you have placed in us when you provide your personal contact information so we can stay in touch.  We were recently notified by Blackbaud, Inc, the database management system that hosts our communications platform, eTapestry, that they were the victims of a ransomware attack. Backup copies of some of the NCF data files were part of what was stolen. These files contained some limited, publicly available personal information. Fortunately, we do not maintain personal information in our database that is not publicly available (such as Social Security numbers, banking or credit card information, etc.), so there was no non-publicly available information that was compromised. We have been assured by Blackbaud, Inc., who worked with law enforcement and the FBI, that the stolen files in question have been destroyed and not made public. We believe there is no need for further action, but we felt it important to inform our family of this incident.
