BALTIMORE COUNTY - The Community College of Baltimore County was the victim of a phishing attack.

The college issued a press release on Wednesday saying a slight financial loss resulted from the attack.

As the college continues to investigate the incident, no evidence has been released that indicates any student or employee's personal information was compromised.

CCBC is cooperating with law enforcement and banking officials to investigate the matter.

Sandra Kurtinitis, president of CCBC, says the school is taking this breach seriously.

"We pride ourselves on being good stewards of public money and public trust. We take our financial responsibilities very seriously," Kurtinitis said. "Given the strong effort we have made to fortify our systems with technology and training, this financial breach is highly disturbing. We are working closely with law enforcement officials to determine how this crime occurred and what additional preventive actions we can take in the future."
