Report: A New Cybersecurity Incident Strikes K-12 Schools Nearly Every Three Days
FEBRUARY 7, 2019
Just a little over a month into 2019, already about a dozen cybersecurity incidents have struck U.S. school districts. And if the past is any indication, more are likely to come. A U.S. school district becomes the victim of a cyberattack almost as often as every three days, according to a report released Thursday. Last year, public K-12 education institutions experienced 122 known cybersecurity incidents, ranging from data breaches to phishing scams and ransomware attacks.
