Students’ info lifted, provided to third party

Katrease Stafford reports:

Eastern Michigan University is investigating two former student employees who are believed to have taken personal identifiable information of approximately 45 students and improperly provided it to a third party.

The data was taken from student records the former student employees had access to during the course of their employment.

The University said the names, date of birth and Social Security numbers were improperly accessed by those students.

Students whose information might have been compromised were notified individually by the University.
