San Diego Unified cybersecurity breach more impactful than previously known | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

A cybersecurity breach at San Diego Unified was more impactful than previously known, affecting more people and more types of personal data than was originally disclosed, district officials said, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

In addition to affecting the medical information of students, as was previously known, the breach also compromised current and former employees’ social security numbers, direct deposit information, medical information and more, the district’s executive director of risk services, Dennis Monahan, told the newspaper.

San Diego Unified is the state’s second-largest school district with about 132,000 students and about 16,000 employees.

Mohanan said the district uncovered the new details in April amid an investigation into the breach. He added that San Diego Unified has since implemented new security safeguards, though he didn’t say what specific safeguards are now in place.

“SDUSD takes this incident very seriously and sincerely regrets any concern this may cause,” he said.
