K-12 Cybersecurity Incidents Are on the Rise!

As the world continues to become more technologically dependent, K-12 school settings are also increasing their use of technology. As with any organization, this puts them at a greater risk of cybersecurity attacks. According to a report from the K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center, 348 cybersecurity attacks were reported in 2019, a 185% increase from 2018! These cybersecurity threats can be in the form of data breaches or ransomware attacks, causing school closures, money and fear about student and staff privacy.
