UNI employees report identity theft after breach

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Employees at the University of Northern Iowa say they're victims of identity theft following some sort of data breach at the school.

Affected employees and others attended a public forum Tuesday to discuss the issue.

Experts on computer science, tax fraud investigation and information technology served as a panel to answer questions. UNI President Bill Ruud opened the forum with an apology.

Many employees reported incidents of fraud after filing tax returns earlier this year. A school official says UNI doesn't know where the data was compromised.

Michael Hager, vice president of administration and financial affairs, says all employees should assume they have been affected and take necessary steps to secure their identity. Free credit monitoring has been offered.
