Olympia Schools Investigating Recent Cyber Attack

“Olympia Community Unit School District 16 in Illinois has been working with a cybersecurity insurance provider to investigate a cyber attack on Feb. 26, and multifactor authentication may have minimized potential damage. “

“Feb. 26 was a Sunday and the district was not entirely sure where access to systems stood by that evening, so it used a remote learning day on Feb. 27. The district emailed parents both days to inform them about what it could share at that point.“

“The district is still determining exactly what was accessed. However, the district's Skyward system and Google Drive system do not appear to have been impacted, O'Donnell said. “
