The Office of Advancement announced a data breach involving third-party service provider Blackbaud in a statement sent out to members of the DePaul community Thursday.
The company suffered from a “ransomware attack” in which backup files containing personal information from various institutions across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom were obtained.
According to the statement, the incident apparently occurred between Feb. 7 and May 20, and Blackbaud “recently” notified the university of the breach.
