The External Affairs Unit (EAU) is here to keep you in touch with other Bath Spa alumni and the wider University community.
Blackbaud Security Data Incident
On Thursday 16 July 2020 we were notified by Blackbaud that our database of alumni and supporters which is hosted by them was subject to a ransomware attack and a copy of some of our backup data has been affected.
We have notified the ICO and are undertaking internal investigations to identify the impact of this incident on the individuals affected. We are one of a large number of organisations impacted by this incident and we are working with Blackbaud to understand how this could have happened and seek assurances in regards to their data protection measures.
We have made a number of initial notifications to individuals, but if you haven't been contacted and believe you may be affected by this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
