Lansing Community College Data Breach potentially puts 757K Individuals at Risk
Shub & Johns LLC is currently investigating Lansing Community College (“LCC”) for an apparent failure to safeguard sensitive consumer information in a data breach that was detected on or around March 14, 2023. LCC, a Lansing-based institution of higher education and one of the largest community colleges in Michigan, discovered that an unauthorized actor gained access to a portion of LCC’s IT network. Through further investigation, it was determined that the breach took place between December 22, 2022 and March 15, 2023.
Though the data security breach was discovered in mid March, the Company only began notifying affected individuals on June 30, 2023 after filing a public notice with the Maine Attorney General. LCC has indicated that approximately 757,832 individuals have been impacted by the breach. Consumer information exposed in the breach may vary but can include your full name and Social Security Number.
The cybercriminals responsible for the breach may have already obtained and sold the compromised consumer information. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, medical and/or government services ordered in their name, or their information being posted on the dark web.
