Puget Sound Educational Service District reports data breach

Q13Fox reports:

The Puget Sound Educational Service District (PSESD) sent out a notice to current and former students, and employees of King and Pierce County Schools, after learning of a data breach within their computer network.

According to PSESD, they first learned of “unusual activity” in its network on or about July 25th of last year. Soon after, they took a portion of its network offline and hired a computer forensic specialist to determine how widespread the hack may have been.

If they first learned about unusual activity in July, then in my opinion, this has taken too long to send out notifications or to issue some press release to alert people that their identify information may be in criminals’ hands.
