Provo City School District suffers data breach

Barbara Christiansen reports:

Employees of the Provo City School District may have an extra concern facing them as the district has discovered a data breach.

There was a phishing attack and someone gained access to an employee’s email account. That account contained files with sensitive, personal identification information for about half of the district’s employees. The district employs slightly more than 1,000 people.

No student records were affected, said Caleb Price, district spokesman.
