Late last night, Loyola University Maryland’s direct deposit notification system—an automated system that alerts employees when their payroll direct deposits will be received—experienced an error resulting in notifications being sent to a large number of individuals with email addresses on file with the University, including alumni, prospective students, donors, and other friends of the University. If you received a notification email in error, please know that no sensitive information was contained in the messages, and that your email addresses remain on file only within Loyola’s database—they have not been released to a third party.
The University’s payroll and Technology Services departments are working to identify the source of the error and to prevent it from happening again.
The University regrets the error and any inconvenience it may have caused.
