Schools are vulnerable to cyber attacks due to the increased use of technology for teaching and learning. In addition, schools face internal and external threats all while education shifts from in-person to online classes. In 2020, IBM Security’s annual X-Force Threat Intelligence Index report found that half of all attacks on the education sector were spam or adware, while 10% of attacks were ransomware. In many of those cases, hackers were able to shut down online education systems, affecting millions of students worldwide.
