Significant damage linked to former SLC IT employee leaking information
SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City will have to pay for an extensive outside audit to learn just how much damage was done by a former IT employee, suspected of providing sensitive information to people involved in a sex trafficking ring.
As reported by KSL TV’s Daniella Rivera and Annie Knox, assistant Utah attorney general Kaytlin Beckett said that Salt Lake City’s vice and narcotics units were particularly affected by the information breach.
The information came from an appearance in West Jordan’s 3rd District Court on Tuesday.
“Salt Lake City Corp. is now in a position of having to pay for an outside digital forensic audit of their entire system,” assistant Utah attorney general Kaytlin Beckett.
Beckett also said that the suspect, Patrick Kevin Driscoll, shared information about other police agencies as well as Salt Lake City police.
Driscoll is charged with trading information involving police activity associated with a sex trafficking operation in exchange for money and sex.
