Usually, there is no risk when it comes to sensitive data files, but several cyber attacks deliberately set the Avon Public Schools in danger. Over six weeks, this issue kept coming, and no one could figure it out until it made the school system’s network offline an ample time in a day. It turned out to be costly, and the lessons plan that the students had to access, couldn’t because the internet came to a halt.
Robert Vojtek, the technology director, called the FBI to talk about this issue, and the FBI agent asked him about the cost that this incident had made. And the technology director replied him direct away that 4,000 students suffered as the teaching and learning was postponed for the entire day.
These types of attacks are common for banks and other communities that hold sensitive information that target the school systems of the country. Since the technology has been improved over the years, it has helped students a lot with generating ideas and collecting data related to their studies. However, education technology can be harmed due to the hackers that try to invade our privacy. This type of behavior also worsens the attacks when those industrial tools are of no use due to internet usage.
According to the FBI, schools are the moving target for hackers since they provide various social and sensitive information. FBI said that attacks upon schools are most frequent these days and they can also occur very frequently, and that can harm students laptops and other technology-related things.
The Florida Keys schools went offline for several days last September after the employees found out that possible malware attacks were going on. Moreover, they at first were not used to with the situation, but several tries and dedication helped them with their targets.
