Is Your School’s Data Safe? A Growing Threat in the Education System

This informative blog addresses the critical issue of cybersecurity in schools, highlighting the increasing risks and consequences of cyberattacks as educational institutions integrate more technology. It presents alarming statistics, including over 1,600 reported cyberattacks on K-12 schools between 2016 and 2022, which have resulted in significant financial losses. The blog outlines common methods used by cybercriminals, such as phishing, ransomware, and DDoS attacks, and shares real-world examples where schools have fallen victim to these threats. Additionally, it explores the broader implications of data breaches that extend beyond financial losses to include the exposure of sensitive student and staff information. To combat these threats, the blog advocates for robust security measures and introduces DynaFile, a tailored document management system that offers features like bank-grade encryption, detailed user activity logs, and role-based access control. The blog is a crucial read for educators and administrative personnel seeking to enhance their school's cybersecurity measures and protect their community from potential cyber threats.
