University of Minnesota faces lawsuit over potentially massive data breach
August 30, 2023
former student and former employee have sued the University of Minnesota, arguing it didn't do enough to protect their personal information from a potentially massive data breach.
Attorneys representing the pair argue that the university "knew or should have known" about an array of state and federal laws and other data security measures that "would have prevented the Data Breach from occurring at all, or limited and shortened the scope of the Data Breach."
"UMN was fully capable of preventing'' the breach, attorneys wrote in the lawsuit, filed in federal court Friday.
