Pipestone Kin-Ability Centre is working closely with the RCMP to recover stolen funds following a cyber attack on our payroll system discovered on October 1, 2019. The attackers gained unauthorized access to acquire hundreds of thousands of dollars, used for general operations and wages for our employees.

As soon as we learned of the breach, we contacted the RCMP and took immediate steps to ensure no further withdrawals could occur. We also took steps to ensure that our employees would be paid on schedule, and to maintain our normal course of operations.

As the RCMP continues its investigation, we are reviewing the security features of our systems to defend against similar attacks in the future. Employees have been advised of this incident.

We are hopeful that the RCMP's investigation will lead to arrests and the recovery of these funds. As a non-profit organization providing support services to adults with cognitive disabilities, these funds enable us to provide employees with support services, programs and opportunities to live their best lives.

As the incident is currently under investigation, Kin-Ability Centre will refrain from further comment at this time. Questions regarding the theft and investigation may be forwarded to Saskatchewan RCMP Media Relations.

We appreciate the assistance of the RCMP and we remain grateful for the ongoing support of our community.
