(WTNH) — LAZ Parking says the personal data of nearly 14,000 employees may have been stolen.

“It has been brought to our attention that a data breach has occurred and personal information from nearly 14,000 full-time and part-time LAZ employees from throughout the country may have been obtained by an unknown individual,” LAZ Parking Spokesperson Mary Brennan Coursey said in a statement. “Our systems remain secure and we alerted authorities as soon as we were made aware of the situation. Cyber security specialists have been engaged to work with us to help prevent this type of incident from recurring in the future. We are taking measures such as offering all potentially affected employees 24 months of complimentary identity repair and protection services, including credit monitoring services. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause our employees.”

LAZ Parking’s website shows the company manages parking structures throughout Connecticut, including at Bradley International Airport, in Hartford, New Haven, at UConn, the UConn Health Center, and Housatonic Community College.
