Maricopa Security Breach

The rest of the story


MCCCD Recall | Security Breach | Public Records

Maricopa County Community College District has issued a recall of Public Records that they released to the public. Below is another letter from the MCCCD Administration received today (3/7/2014). It remains as vague and as threatening as the original request.


They are yet to provide us public records needed for Mr. Corzo and Mr. Monsour defense (see related blog). Now, MCCCD appears to be recalling records Mr. Corzo and Mr. Monsour originally obtained and paid for via a formal request for public records . It sounds like they want to make a determination whether those records they released back in 2012 are indeed ‘sensitive and confidential’

District letter2

None of the record released via public records request contain sensitive and confidential information.

When they released public records, they already made the determination that the information in those records was neither sensitive nor confidential.  All these records have been filed with the Federal Government in an EEOC Complaint.

Last but not least, these records are simply proof that someone did not follow policy (see recent ‘MCCCD Policies ignored by Glasper) and that lack of action eventually led MCCCD to the most expensive security breach in their history.  It looks like MCCCD wants to collect all incriminating evidence that their administration did not follow their own policy.

MCCCD Employees respond to Mr. James Bowers request for documents

Here is the response letter that both Mr. Monsour and Mr. Corzo sent to Jim Bowers by 5pm on 3/4/2013.

Mr Bowers, Interim VC of HR for MCCCD, demanded that Mr. Corzo and Mr. Monsour turn over “possession of highly sensitive and confidential information and documents proprietary to Maricopa Community College District”  & “documents that contain sensitive information about the district’s network”.

Neither Mr. Monsour or Mr. Corzo were in charge of the Network at MCCCD at the time of the 2011 or 2013 incidents. They don’t have any documents containing sensitive information about the district network.  These documents reside with the network team at MCCCD and the Director in charge of the network infrastructure.  Mr. Monsour has been on medical leave since Fall 2012 and Mr. Corzo has never been in charge of the MCCCD network.  These letter is retaliatory in nature and another attempt at intimidating employees. This is one of the reasons why ITS has lost nearly 50% of their staff since 2011.

Mr. James Bowers
Interim Vice Chancellor Human Resources
Maricopa County Community College District

Mr. Bowers;

This letter responds to your February 28, 2014, letter demanding that I turn over “possession of highly sensitive and confidential information and documents proprietary to Maricopa Community College District.”  Without more specificity as to the documents you seek, I am unable to provide you with any documents.
