Increased Cyber Threats Require NJ Schools to Take Action
Author: Maryam M. MesehaDate: April 8, 2021
Cybercriminals are likely targeting schools, according to an Alert issued jointly by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). The Joint Cybersecurity Advisory warns that cyberattacks against K-12 educational institutions are on the rise, resulting in the disruption of remote learning, data theft, and ransomware attacks.
While learning has shifted online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, cybercriminals increasingly view schools as targets of opportunity. Schools are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks since they were forced to quickly shift to remote learning environments in response to the pandemic; many staff members and students are new to online learning platforms; and many districts lack the resources to adequately safeguard their IT systems from mounting threats.
