“This is only a test.”

That was part of a communication broadcast via e-mail, voice mail, and text messaging to JCC students, faculty, and staff earlier this month as the college tested NY-Alert, a safety notification system. According to Susan Bronstein, director of human resources and campus-wide safety, the test was a success.

Jamestown Community College was informed that a laptop computer containing private identifiable information associated with the college was stolen. The laptop was owned by a consultant from SunGard, a Pennsylvania-based company that provides the records system used at JCC and more than 1600 other colleges and universities worldwide. SunGard believes that the laptop was stolen for its hardware value rather than the data and notes that the laptop was heavily password protected. The computer has not been recovered.
