BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Ferris State University has closed its investigation into a data security breach that risked unauthorized access to data about tens of thousands of people, including their Social Security numbers.
The school in Big Rapids said in a statement Tuesday that it found no evidence to suggest the information was viewed or taken. It also is conducting a review of its information technology systems to see what more can be done to improve its computer security.
"Taking aggressive action early and confronting this issue is consistent with the university's core value of behaving in an ethical and transparent fashion," Jerry Scoby, vice president for administration and finance at Ferris State, said in the statement. "We are focusing now on further strengthening the security of our systems to help protect the information provided to us."
The school earlier said it learned on July 23 that an unauthorized person evaded network security and gained access to a computer that was used to operate its website.
