Dear Bradley employees, retirees, and former employees,

You and members of your family may have had your personally identifiable information, including Social Security numbers, compromised as a result of a potential breach of system data security.

An internal investigation conducted over the last several days discovered malware (malicious software) on two University computers containing personally identifiable information. The malware may have captured personal information including Social Security numbers for unauthorized use. We have received reports from employees indicating fraudulent tax return filings have occurred.

The identified malware has been deactivated. A team of Computing Services staff members and external experts, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service - Criminal Division, are investigating the situation and are helping ensure our systems are secure.

You are encouraged to monitor your personal financial accounts and credit reports for irregular activity. The University has created this website with resources to assist you. A response center has also been set up to assist with your questions from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at (309) ­677-­4653. Bradley is committed to assisting with this effort and is offering a one­-year identification protection and credit monitoring service for you at no charge. The service is called LifeLock and you will find details on enrolling in the service on this website.

The University takes the security of all data within our systems very seriously and we apologize for this potential breach. Each year our systems are subject to a confidential security audit by outside professionals and we repeatedly have received excellent ratings. We will continue to be vigilant in our efforts to secure our data systems and will continue to keep you informed.
