AUAS and UvA targets of cyber attack

17 Feb 2021 11:33 | Communication

The Security and Operations Centre of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) and University of Amsterdam (UvA) have found that an unknown third party has gained access to the ICT environments of the AUAS and the UvA. Measures are being taken to minimise the impact and to ensure that education and research can continue to take place unimpeded.

Unavailability of ICT services

We are investigating which areas of our ICT environment are affected. To limit the impact on education and research as much as possible, we will proactively shut down certain systems for a short period of time. While they are shut down, the systems and the information contained there will not be available. We understand that this is inconvenient and will try to limit it where possible.
