Ransomware

Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents users from accessing their computers or files stored on their computers. Cyberattackers demand that their victims pay a ransom before they'll provide access.

To cope with this new challenge, school district leaders need to arm themselves with the best possible information to protect their data and avoid spending taxpayer money on ransoms or recovery efforts.
