NORMAL — There will be no online classes at Heartland Community College Wednesday as the institution works to recover from a computer system security breach.
The college shut down its online operations, including classes, on Monday morning as a safety measure after detecting an outside source had compromised some of its systems.
Heartland spokesman Steve Fast said Wednesday morning restoring the systems is a slow process as officials want to make sure nothing is compromised. The college is working with a consulting firm, he said.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Heartland said, “The college is not aware o any student or personnel data compromised by this action.”
Students may access remote student support services by calling 309-268-8033 or texting 309-392-4012.
