There's no evidence of any data theft, but officials say they're still investigating.

The NMSU Foundation is looking to hire an external cybersecurity forensics company to determine exactly what occurred and confirm the security of the network.

The foundation's network is separate from the university.

The foundation is made up the Office of Alumni Relations and the Office of University Advancement. Its network is separate from the university.
