The Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) says an investigation into a cyberattack in July has found that databases containing the personal information of some students was accessed along with current and past employees.
In July, the school board said it was notified of unauthorized access to its IT system. The Ontario Provincial Police launched an investigation, alongside the school board’s own internal team, and the school board released the findings late Friday afternoon.
“We recently had an investigation finalized and that investigation let us know for certain that databases containing personnel information as well as one small student database was accessed,” Eusis Dougan-McKenzie, the school board’s chief communications officer told CBC Kitchener-Waterloo.
Dougan-McKenzie said it was still trying to figure out exactly what student information was compromised.
