San Diego Unified student medical data compromised in cybersecurity breach

The medical information of some students at San Diego Unified was compromised in a cybersecurity breach last fall, district officials told families this month, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

The district did not respond to questions from the Union-Tribune about how many students had their information compromised. The breach happened on Oct. 25 and families were notified in December. Staff and students in the district have since been issued new passwords to access the district’s network.

The district is currently conducting an investigation and plans to notify affected students as it identifies them, a spokesperson told the Union-Tribune.
