HATTIESBURG — The University of Southern Mississippi is investigating allegations that an employee accessed personal information of other employees on the Hattiesburg campus.

USM President Rodney Bennett informed staff and faculty of the investigation by email yesterday.

Bennett says the staff member at the focus of the allegations, whom he did not identify, has resigned. He says the University Police Department will determine if there will be criminal charges.

Bennett says employees whose information was involved have been notified.

Bennett urged faculty and staff to be vigilant about keeping up with personal account information.
