Urgent Need for Cybersecurity in Education: Recent Hack Exposes Sensitive Information of Students and Teachers


These are challenging times for school district officials across the United States. NBC News report revealed that the hackers who breached the Minneapolis Public Schools earlier this year distributed a vast amount of files that include highly sensitive information about students and teachers. This information ranges from allegations of teacher abuse to students’ psychological evaluations and even Social Security numbers.

Threat actors target K-12 institutions because they believe schools have insufficient cybersecurity and therefore are easy to exploit. School officials must address this troubling reality and take proactive measures to protect their systems and sensitive data.

Fortunately, there’s hope for school districts looking to prevent such breaches. Soter Technologies has partnered with CyberCatch to provide the tools and solutions necessary to identify IT threats and vulnerabilities before hackers do.
