PA: Point Park University notifies employees of possible data breach

Justine Coyne reports employees at a Pittsburgh university are being notified after a package containing payroll reports from the university’s payroll vendor, Ceridian, arrived with the reports missing from the package:

Point Park University on Wednesday alerted employees to a potential data breach involving names, home addresses, Social Security numbers and other information.

The potential data breach was announced in an email to employees by Point Park President Paul Hennigan. As many as 1,800 employees could have been impacted by the incident that is under investigation, the university said.


The university was expecting a package from its payroll processing vendor Ceridian, but when the package arrived to campus it was missing all of the accompanying reports, according to an internal email obtained by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The missing data included employee names, home addresses, Social Security numbers, wage information, birthdates, bank accounts and routing numbers.
