This past Labor Day Weekend, the second largest school district in the country — Los Angeles Unified — was hit by a ransomware attack. While media reports were drawing attention to this incident, many educational and cybersecurity professionals already know such attacks are happening.
That’s because cybercriminals have ramped up their attacks against school districts and educational institutions since the transition to remote and hybrid learning. These attackers have been targeting the typically weaker cybersecurity of educational organizations to steal valuable student, employee and institutional information.
In our new 15-minute webinar, we’ll hear from Eva Velasquez, President and CEO of the Identity Theft Resource Center and one of the nation’s experts in identity theft. She’ll share the lessons learned from the past year of cyberthreats that target educational institutions and explain:
- Why educational institutions are being targeted | Hear how cybercriminals engineer their attacks and what they’re after when attacking schools, colleges and universities.
- How cyberattacks impact staff and students | Discover how the information stolen from a school can have a lasting impact on the employees, students, parents and alumni.
- What steps individuals can take to protect themselves | Learn what you can do now to reduce the risks to your family’s digital safety if your personal information is compromised.
