The news that was published on social media and that spread quickly, was not true. The security camera footage shown is not from the ministry premises. We urge the citizens not to fall for speculations and to be calm regarding the issue of protection of personal data that we have at our disposal for pupils, students, teaching staff and the like. The MES systems are adequately protected, informs the Ministry of Education and Science.
The Ministry of Education and Science also informs that after checks of the relevant internal service together with the competent institutions for dealing with computer incidents, no intrusion was found in the electronic systems and databases that we have as an institution.
In the meantime, we remain in constant coordination and continue to work with all relevant institutions and bodies working in the field of cybercrime and conflicts, in order to raise the security of electronic systems to an even higher level, says the Ministry of Education and Science.
