Ryerson University has disclosed a privacy breach which resulted in the personal data of 588 students being exposed.

The university, in a news release this morning, says the breach has been corrected and they do not believe any harm will come to the affected students. The breach resulted in the exposure of personal data including, in many cases, social insurance numbers.

Last year, Carleton and Memorial also had breaches that exposed private data.
