Champlain College Warns Of Data Security Breach

Champlain College is offering data protection services to more than 14,000 students and their families after a computer drive containing their Social Security numbers and other data was left unsecured in a computer lab.

The college says it has no evidence of any attempted or actual misuse of the information, but is taking the steps out of an abundance of caution.

The data security lapse is said to have affected 14,217 students who applied for admission over a four-year period ending this year. Some of those students didn't end up enrolling at Champlain.

The college says a small number of graduate and Continuing Professional Studies students may also be affected.

The college has offered those affected free information security monitoring by an independent company for a year.
