New article – Costs of MCCCD computer breach escalate
Here is a link to a new article by Mary Beth Faller in the AZ Republic regarding the MCCCD computer breach.
Just a few months after the breach, legal costs are beginning to skyrocket.
IT costs are also beginning to escalate as projects previously approved by the Board now need resources for implementation.
ITS is asking the Governing Board for additional funding to hire new IT staff. It is unclear what happened to the ‘permanent dollars’ ITS had from the 40+ individuals who left the organization in the midst of the turmoil. Salary savings might have been used to hire consultants.
