Personal data stolen during Laurentian cyber incident, university offering credit monitoring

Laurentian University has shared further detail on the impact of the recent cyber incident that took down its systems, as well as the measures it is taking to address those impacts. The personal data of select employees and graduate students affiliated with the Living with Lakes Centre and students and postgraduate residents involved in the Northern Ontario School of Medicine program was reportedly stolen during the attack. “The data associated with these individuals that were exposed varies and we continue to investigate in order to determine the specifics of the data,” said Laurentian. “This process will likely take a number of months.” The university is offering free credit monitoring for two years for all individuals affected by the breach and is also implementing coursework and assignment extensions, exam date changes, and compassionate grading.
