The online training institute of the Indian Institute of Metallurgical Sciences (IIMSS) has suspended operations after a security breach.
According to a statement on the institute’s website, the institute was shut down due to the security breach of its database, the data stored in the data centre and the security protocols that it used.
The institute has taken steps to secure its website and database.
The institute will continue to conduct its normal operations and will provide all necessary support to the authorities.
