Update cyber security -1-03-2021: University of Amsterdam

University of Amsterdam

In this update, we again draw attention to changing your password. More than 70,000 colleagues and students have already done so. Thanks for that!

Have you not changed your password yet? Then do it as soon as possible. At the end of this week, we will block accounts for which the password hasn’t been changed after 23 February 2021. Do you have tests to write? Make sure you change your password before March 3.

We realise that this can be a tricky process. Are you stuck? Then contact the ICTS Service Desk. We’re here to help daily from 7:00 to 22:00, including on weekends.

When contacting the Service Desk, please allow for some waiting time, especially if you contact us by email.

Teams from the UvA and AUAS are still working hard to resolve the cyber attack. As yet, there have been no major disruptions to education and research, and we hope that these will not occur. All systems are online and usable. The investigation into the attack is at an advanced stage. If you have any questions, please visit the website or contact the ICTS Service Desk.
