Swindon College suffered a targeted cyber attack recently, meaning unauthorised access to personal data of current and former staff members and students was accessed.
The college requested that anyone who could have been affected should check their bank accounts for suspicious activity. The Information Commissioner’s Office and National Crime Agency were informed, and the further education college stated a criminal investigation was ongoing.
In a statement, the college said they knew there would be cause for concern and said they would contact all individuals affected with more detail as soon as they are able to do so.
