Lanaudière temporarily closes after cyberattack

Cégep de Lanaudière has temporarily closed the doors to its campuses in Joliette, L’Assomption, Terrebonne, and Repentigny after the institution suffered from a cyberattack last week. While no data leak is suspected, the cégep said that they will pause face-to-face and distance learning courses. During this time, the institution will consult with external cybersecurity experts to investigate the matter further. A music school located on the Joliette campus noted that the cyberattack impacted the campus’ lighting, heating, ventilation, and fire alarm system.
