Data breach recorded at SFU, B.C.'s privacy commissioner notified

BY , Mar 3, 2020 12:59 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

B.C.'s privacy commissioner has been notified of a data breach recorded at Simon Fraser University last Thursday.

Administrators say the problem was identified and corrected the following day but students and staff are being asked to change their passwords because their privacy may have been breached.

Chief information officer Mark Roman sent out an email this morning saying the ransomware attack involved data collected before June 20th of last year, but no current systems have been exposed.

The cause of the breach is still under investigation.
