University of Dayton Data Breach Investigation

Turke & Strauss LLP, a leading data breach law firm, is investigating the University of Dayton regarding its recent data breach. The University of Dayton data breach involved sensitive personal identifiable information belonging to an undetermined number of individuals.


The University of Dayton is a private research university located in Dayton, Ohio. Founded in 1850 as St. Mary’s School for Boys, the University of Dayton grew into one of the largest Catholic universities in the country. Due to its commitment to Catholic traditions, the University of Dayton seeks to educate students with an emphasis on community and service. With more than 80 undergraduate programs and 50 graduate and doctoral programs, the University of Dayton currently has 11,770 current students, and 125,000 living alumni.


Recently, the University of Dayton discovered that National Student Clearinghouse and Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association, two third-party venders used by the University of Dayton, experienced data breaches in which the sensitive personal identifiable information of University of Dayton students and faculty may have been accessed. While the investigation is ongoing, the University of Dayton determined that an unauthorized actor may have accessed this sensitive information through a cyber-attack on the MOVEit file transfer software used by National Student Clearinghouse or Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association. At present, the type of information exposed has not been made publicly available.
