The institution took the precautionary action on Tuesday (17 May).

“Suspicious activity was identified on our university network in recent days and as a precaution we have temporarily restricted access to a number of services used by staff," said a spokesperson for NUI Galway.

“We believe that this event is not of the same scale as the cyberattack last year and, as then, there is no indication of data having been compromised.”

The university underwent a major cyberattack last September.
