Protecting Student Records and Privacy 

As education progresses through the digital transformation, cyber security has become a top priority.  Cyber attackers are specifically targeting the identities of students (minors).  Stolen student identities have a high value because the lifecycle of fraud goes undetected for much longer than that of adults.  Cyber attackers are using high effective strategies such as phishing emails to circumnavigate firewalls and other defenses.

School administrators must meet with these challenges to comply with student privacy laws and regulations such as FERPA  (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act).  Student information communicated by email, text or video is considered personal identifiable information and must be protected.  This is why cyber security is a top priority of K-12 administrators.

K-12 Organizations Increasingly Targeted for Cyberattacks

“K-12 organizations are increasingly prime targets for cyberattacks, because of the large amount of student and employee data they collect, produce, store and analyze, and the perception they are less well-hardened against attacks than other industries.”

“Like many industries, K-12 education is contending with numerous security threats, such as ransomware, DNS data exfiltration, malware and phishing attacks on employees and students, but adds the historically challenging lack of good cybersecurity behavior on campuses. As the rate of complex attacks continues to rise, organizations are struggling to deal effectively with these threats and associated risks.”

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of minor children is an especially prime target for identity theft.  A young person’s data has a longer life span, thereby creating a higher-profile risk for liability, and greater destruction of trust and reputation.
