Last year, we published a link to a K-12 Cyber Incident Map that highlighted all the publicly-reported Cyber Attacks on public schools since 2016. It’s a great map that showcases just how vulnerable schools can be to cyberthreats, even when they’ve done all they think they can do.
The Hechinger Report aired a podcast last month on this very subject, and if you’ve got 20 minutes to listen, please do. It’s an ear-opening session that every school administrator ought to hear; no district is immune to these threats, yet many do so little to protect themselves against it.
Schools collect more data than ever on students. How is your district protecting it?
