MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - An investigation by a digital forensics company into the release of sensitive student information from a Missoula high school in December has found that “user error” led to the data breach.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1TjJ1VO ) that Attorney Elizabeth Kaleva, who represents Missoula County Public Schools, released LGM Security’s report Friday on the incident at Hellgate High School.

Assistant principal Libby Oliver had resigned days after it was determined that she mistakenly sent an email on Dec. 4 containing the sensitive information. The email was sent to nearly 30 parents and included an attached document containing academic, medical, disciplinary and criminal information on about 1,100 Hellgate students.

LMG’s analysis found that the student information had been added to the document on Oliver’s computer due to user error.
