Data Breach at Fresno

March 7, 2018

Fresno State University has reported that a data drive containing at least 15,000 people's personal information was stolen. CBS reports that the break-in occurred while the campus was closed for the holidays.

According to The Fresno Bee, Fresno State officials said the files contained on the drive may include personal data of Athletic Corporation employees, former student-athletes, and people who attended sports camps, with information from 2003 to 2014. The information may contain the individuals' names, birth dates, addresses, driver's license and credit card numbers, and Social Security numbers.

The police are investigating the data breach, and Fresno State has informed the people who were affected. The school released a news release saying that it has not received any reports that the information has been accessed or misused.

“Though this appears to be an isolated incident, we take any data theft very seriously and will review campus policies to ensure we have best procedures in place when it comes to security of confidential and sensitive data,” Orlando Leon, Chief Information Officer, said.
