Educational institutions have become regular targets for cybercriminals. The education sector accounted for 13 percent of data breaches in the first half of 2017, resulting in the compromise of over 32 million records.
One of the top reasons that schools are targeted is the diverse data they store on students and staff, including personally identifiable information, healthcare information and financial information.
The U.S. Department of Education issued a Cyber Advisory Alert in 2017 stating that K-12 school systems are facing a “new threat where the criminals are seeking to extort money from school districts and other educational institutions on the threat of releasing sensitive data from student records. In some cases, this has included threats of violence, shaming or bullying children unless payment is received.”
