Sheffield Hallam University Confirms Blackbaud-Linked Data Breach

  • University secretary Michaela Boryslawskyj said in an email to members of its community that it was notified by Blackbaud that Sheffield Hallam and a number of other universities had been affected by the incident.
  • As detailed in the Sheffield Star, the email said Blackbaud’s systems were hacked and personal information relating to its alumni and other members of the community were stolen on Thursday July 16 2020.
  • As IT infrastructure is gradually moved to the cloud, organizations must ensure how they transfer data is secure and that its stored safely.
