Education nightmare is already here

Hi All

 

Apparent the biggest nightmare for the education sector is already here, there is a lot of support, but obviously needs more attention and education.

Re: Education nightmare is already here

Our local city school system was hit by a ransomware attack in late 2020.  Because of the dependence on distance learning technologies, the entire school system was closed down for a week.

Fortunately, we have a high concentration of (ISC)² members in our area and volunteers were able to coordinate with the school system and third-party providers to respond and recover operations in an amazingly quick manner, and help secure operations for the future.

 

Very proud of our members.  I really need to do a write-up on it at some point.
