Officials are not revealing the extent and nature of the breach at the Kingston-based college, which is run by the Department of National Defence

and trains officers for all branches of the military. The college’s principal, retired Brigadier-General Harry Kowal, sent all faculty a message on Saturday, saying there “has been a cybersecurity incident targeting the RMC network.”

It is unknown what kind of data breach is being investigated at RMC and whether it could involve personal data, research or intellectual property. No government agencies replied to questions posed by The Globe and Mail. The RMC referred questions to DND, which did not reply. The Communications Security Establishment, a federal intelligence agency, also declined comment.

“The situation is being investigated by DND and CAF,” the memo says, adding that “questions will be addressed by the chain of command in due course.” Dr. Skillicorn also works at RMC, but said he did not know about the memo until The Globe read it to him because he is not part of the military college’s staff.
