Cyberattack hits Okanagan leading to network, website going offline


Okanagan College’s network and website went offline after the college was hit by a cyberattack on Monday morning. Okanagan shut down its network access and launched an investigation after their IT services team “interrupted a cyber-security incident.” The college’s network services, public website, and learning management site were all affected, as well as the college’s ability to send all-user emails. “We are working to determine whether any personal information has been compromised,” said Okanagan President Neil Fassina. “Although it is a priority for us to restore access to the network as soon as possible, we must do this in a safe and secure way.” The college further warned users to be wary of unusual emails claiming to be from the college.
