U of M investigating claimed data breach

“The University of Minnesota confirms that it has contacted law enforcement and is investigating a claimed data breach that officials became aware of just a month ago. “

“U of M spokesman Jake Ricker released a statement to KARE 11 saying on July 21 school administrators became aware that an "unauthorized party" claimed to possess sensitive data reportedly taken from the institution's computer systems. Ricker says an investigation was launched as soon as the claim was discovered, local law enforcement was contacted and state and federal regulators were also notified. “

“Ricker says preliminary findings suggest the data that may be compromised dates back to 2021 and earlier. He says the U of M will be notifying individuals who might be impacted by the claimed breach and providing resources to help prevent misuse of their information. “
