Illinois Valley Community College President Jerry Corcoran says the college isn’t paying a ransom to get its data back. It’ll cost around $200,000, covered by insurance, to restore computers hit by a cyber attack last month. Corcoran says it’s a problem colleges and other big operations have to always watch out for.
Corcoran says the college didn’t miss a beat carrying out its mission of educating students. He’s not ready to say yet just how a cyber-intruder got in to scramble everything.
