Northumbria University cyberattack

Not long into the new academic year, the Northumbria University cyberattack shook the campus IT systems in early September 2020, forcing those at the top to close the campus and postpone scheduled exams.

It remains unclear whether any long-lasting damage was caused by the attack. In our experience as data breach lawyers, we have seen large-scale attacks such as this endanger or expose significant quantities of personal information.

Northumbria is not the first university to have experienced such an attack, a fact that highlights the particular vulnerability of higher education institutions to such malicious cybercrime. In university cyberattacks, employees and students can be adversely affected by the exposure of their personal data, for which they are often able to make a compensation claim. If it emerges that Northumbria University failed to protect personal data, we may be able to help anyone affected.

Data breaches at universities: compensation claims advice

As some of the largest institutions in our society, universities hold huge amounts of personal data, belonging to both their large student populations and their sizeable workforces. As such, it is unsurprising that data breaches at universities have become more common in recent years.

Such breaches can arise from cyberattacks, but they can also result from failures of the universities themselves. As universities grow in size, the challenges of data handling increase, and many universities appear to be falling short of their data protection duties.
