Cybersecurity Is a Top Priority in K12 Education 

Districts and other K12 organizations need to know they can rely on systems that are secure and safe from threats and interruptions to instruction. Cyberattacks are the biggest threat to any institute or organization and are expected to cost its victims about $270 billion annually by 2030, with at least one attack occurring every 2 seconds. More than 90% of cyberattacks are launched through phishing emails. The transformation of remote culture due to the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to this greatly. Organizations experience many cybersecurity threats on a continuous basis.
The ability of the organization to identify and respond to cybersecurity incidents with effective security controls could mean the difference between a minor disruption and a potential disaster or catastrophic event. Our cybersecurity services provide comprehensive and resilient cybersecurity services and solutions customized to meet your requirements. We help your K12 organization to keep pace with new attacks, advances in security technologies, and compliance.

Many K12 school districts are rapidly transforming their networks to implement eLearning and other digital programs to enhance student learning across distributed campuses. In addition to improving new educational platforms, there are large amounts of personally identifiable information (PII) and financial data that must be protected. As these networks continue to transform to deliver better learning experiences across campuses, cybersecurity for K12 is often overlooked, making schools prime targets for cybercriminals. Over the years, cyberattacks on K12 schools and districts have steadily increased, and in 2022 that trend only continued. In the first half of 2022 alone, the education sector saw an average of almost 2,000 attacks every week—a 114% increase compared to two years ago*.
