NOSM U addresses cyber disruption on campus, retains cybersecurity experts


After a cyberattack struck the institution last week, NOSM University has retained cybersecurity experts to outline its next steps. The attack caused the university to lose internet service at its Sudbury and Thunder Bay campuses and several shared drives and websites remain inaccessible. Staff immediately took steps to secure and protect its network; NOSM U employees and students are currently working remotely while the disruption is addressed. “We understand that disruptions like these are frustrating to staff, faculty and students, and that people have a lot of questions,” said NOSM U President Sarita Verma. “We are still in the early stages of addressing this matter. Be rest assured that we have taken the necessary measures to mitigate risk and address business continuity.”
