Maricopa Security Breach

MCCCD employees denied due process | Security Breach

Maricopa Community College District (MCCCD) employees are being denied legal rights to due process by the MCCCD Administration and the hearing committee. MCCCD refuses to comply with employee request to access to public records in order to defend themselves in a public hearing.  Lawsuits are now being filed in court to resolve this matter. MCCCD employees have not received ‘a single’ document since their records request was made months ago. Furthermore, MCCCD appears to have failed to notify their employees of records request as requested in order to preserve evidence. A recent article in the front page of the Arizona RepublicArizona Daily Independent and Databreaches.net tell the story.

The following string of emails represent communications between Mr. Galvan and the hearing committee at MCCCD handling the security breach. Additional communication between these two parties will take place this week. We will post the information as it becomes available. Stay tuned!

Observations:

  • When an edicational institution is not transparent with the public, it is safe to assume that they have something to hide.
  • The matter of public records request is now in court and Mr. Lee Combs, legal counsel for MCCCD, is being sued for MCCCD refusal to turn over public records. Other lawsuits are on the way.

Here’s why it’s important:

I support saving the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) through accountability and transparency.  As a result, I am demanding that the MCCCD Governing Board take action in the matter of the data breach in 2013.  I support that the Governing Board obtain a second legal opinion from an outside Information Technology counsel to save Maricopa and taxpayers millions of dollars now being wasted on IT systems and attorneys to deal with the security breach.
If you are looking for a chronology of events that show how this entire incident could have been avoided, look here.  If you are looking for a history of Board minutes since April 2013 to see how much money is being spent, look here.

Please help the MCCCD Governing take action with your support. Millions of taxpayer dollars and future tuition increases are at stake.

After signing this petition, please contact the MCCCD Board members directly to encourage them to take action and help our community.
