Cyber criminals aim their attacks at targets that store valuable data and have limited resources to invest in cybersecurity. That has made the education sector a popular and growing target for cyber attacks threat actors to encrypt and exfiltrate data for ransom and extortion. Cyber criminals use phishing attacks to target education administrators, staff members, and even students to gain access to credentials and escalate privileges in networks. With K-12 and higher education experiencing more connectivity and devices in learning, and utilizing cloud based tools and networks, there are more attack vectors for cyber criminals to target and gain access to a network through.
