Dear Westlake Residents:
We value your privacy and security, which is why, as a precautionary measure, we are writing to inform you of a data security incident that may involve your personal information.
On the afternoon of May 2, 2022, we became aware of a security vulnerability affecting the Town of Westlake website, which exposed data stored in the Town’s records management software. By exploiting this vulnerability, an individual was able to gain access to Town public utility records. The data accessed may have included the names, home and email addresses, phone numbers, and driver’s license numbers of Westlake residents.
Immediately upon discovering the data breach, we took steps to secure the website and prevent further unauthorized access. The vulnerability was remedied within ten minutes of discovery, and the Town has taken additional security measures to protect resident information and ensure the incident is properly addressed.
We sincerely apologize and regret that this situation has occurred. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at 817-490-5715 or email me at email@example.com.
Westlake Town Manager
