INDIANAPOLIS — The YMCA is taking steps to protect employee information after some of it was accidentally emailed out to other employees within the organization.

The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis confirms that on January 25, an employee inadvertently emailed an attachment containing some current and former employees' personal contact information to a small number of other YMCA workers.

The YMCA said the employee quickly recalled the message and the email was permanently deleted from mailboxes within the hour.

They have shared resources with the affected employees and are offering free credit monitoring services for one year, according to Christy Glesing, Senior Director of Public Relations and Communications for the YMCA.
