MAASTRICHT. The Inspectorate of Education is satisfied with Maastricht University’s performance after the cyberattack last December. Everything was focused on the continuation of education after the Christmas period, it states in a report that was published last Friday. To this end, the Executive Board took “well-considered decisions”. With this, the Inspectorate approves of the ransom payment by the UM. Nevertheless, the hack had more drastic consequences than was necessary. The UM could have been better prepared, suitable measures were “not always” taken beforehand.
