Suspicious emails received by some staff and students

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Following our reporting of a cyber incident earlier this month, we are aware that some staff and students have been sent emails purporting to be from those behind it. All staff and students should be wary of opening suspicious emails or phishing attempts, and report them to IT Services. They should not respond under any circumstances.

There is guidance on how to do this on our website.

Our in-house experts and external support are working around-the-clock to resolve this incident, and to understand what data has been accessed. Our priority is to resolve this issue and provide information to those affected as soon as we are able to, and we are focussing all available resources.

We have set up a dedicated information and support page which is being updated regularly.

If staff or students are identified who have been personally impacted by this incident they will be contacted through University channels.

Thank you for your continued patience as we work to resolve this issue.
