A Trend of Cyberattacks on Schools Continues to Affect Institutions 

Ransomware gangs continue the trend of targeting small colleges and K–12 institutions. Recent victims include Bluefield University in Bluefield, Virginia and a public school district in Crawford County, Pennsylvania.

Bluefield had to shut down their networks to avoid further corruption to their systems. The outages affected internet connectivity, printers, and telephones.

With an incident response plan in place, administrators alerted parents and staff about the issues and activated a prepared backup plan while their cybersecurity teams investigated.

With 27 confirmed ransomware attacks on Higher Education so far this year, GreyCastle Security strongly recommends developing an Incident Response plan to protect your institutions from attack. Keep your students and their data protected. Stay safe out there.
