NAITSA, Western USC affected by recent data breach


Students at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and Western University were recently affected by a data breach involving Gallivan, a broker that operates the student benefits plans for NAIT’s Student Association (NAITSA) and Western’s University Student Council (USC). Gallivan first learned of a data breach in March 2023 and determined that student names, emails, and dates of birth were compromised. It has since taken steps to address the breach. These steps include discontinuing use of the compromised third-party file transfer service, offering complementary credit monitoring services to affected students, and reporting the incident to the authorities.
