Data Breach at The Chronicle of Higher Education


BC ITS has recently learned about a data breach at the The Chronicle of Higher Education ( where subscriber login information, including passwords, was compromised. 

As this is a popular service used by members of the BC community, if you have an account at The Chronicle of Higher Education, ITS recommends you change that password as soon as possible.


  • Login to your Chronicle account and change your password immediately.
  • If the password you used on The Chronicle was also used on other sites, change those passwords as well.
  • Ensure you are following these password best practices:
    • If possible, avoid using your BC username or email address on non-BC systems.
    • Consider using a “password manager” to keep track of your passwords, rather than reusing passwords on multiple sites.
