In fact, schools are the third most breached sector, making up a full ten percent of all information breaches according to a 2016 survey from Symantec. Both teachers and students use the computer systems heavily, placing a large amount of sensitive data out there for hackers. While some hacks might not be monumental, others can have serious consequences when the cyber attack leads to document falsification or vandalism. All of the schools who use technology daily need to come up with a strategy to implement better cybersecurity.
