The university announced earlier this month that it's investigating a data security breach and it recommended everyone – faculty, staff and students – with an Emory online ID account to change their password. The university did not specify what type of information might have been compromised but said it was not aware of any health or Social Security information that was.
"Information security is one of Emory University’s highest priorities and
we are continually upgrading our systems to defend against cyber
attacks. Like many institutions, Emory repels millions of attempted
attacks on its information systems each day," the university said in a statement. "Because of the ongoing nature of the investigation, we cannot at this
point give more details, but we will provide updates to the Emory
community in due course."
