Columbia College Chicago should have shared data breach information sooner, experts say

Kendall Polidori and Mari Devereaux report:

Eight days after the school fell victim to an attack by NetWalker, a group of data hackers, Columbia officials sent a collegewide email stating the college is “working diligently around the clock with outside professionals and law enforcement to protect its student community and employees.”

The email said individuals who have been impacted by this breach are currently unknown because the investigation is still underway, and said the college will provide more guidance and notify those affected when more information surfaces.
