Jisc Shares a Cyberattack Story From a Member Institution

Jisc explored the process of identifying and rectifying a cyberattack with The Lincoln College Group’s group director of IT, information management, and projects, Graham Harrison. Harrison explains, “Getting the IT estate back within such a short space of time was a good result, but it created a lot of stress, pressure and anxiety for a lot of people; and not just technical staff. Teachers, administrators, managers and students were affected, as well as key stakeholders like suppliers and employers.” The aftermath of the attack lasted 17 days, during which “the launch point for the attack was identified and secured: more than 80 servers were fully restored, 1,600 desktop and laptop computers across multiple sites were wiped and reimaged, and passwords were reset for 1,000 staff and 5,000 students,” says Harrison.

Jisc notes, “At the time of the attack, Graham felt Lincoln College Group had a strong level of traditional security measures like firewalls, anti-virus, anti-malware, policies, processes and procedures in place.”
