Laurentian works toward restoring systems after cyberattack, students concerned about outage

Laurentian University is working to restore its systems after a cyberattack resulted in several of its systems going offline. The Sudbury Star reports that Laurentian is still trying to restore its Wi-Fi, email, and online teaching systems. Online student Kaitlyn Dickinson said she has been unable to access course materials since the cyberattack and is worried that students will not be able to catch up on their coursework. Fourth-year Laurentian student Mia Valllière expressed concerns about how the outage might impact students’ future success, as it has rendered research databases and scholarships unavailable. “We do deserve to be taken seriously as [graduate school] candidates who care about one another and about our education,” said Valllière.
