A total of 1,331 publicly-disclosed cyber incidents affecting U.S. school districts occurred in 2021.

This equates to a rate of more than one K-12 cyber incident per school day.

The recent cyberattacks are the tip of the iceberg. Threat actors are breaking in to networks, stealing hundreds of gigabytes of confidential and personal information of students and installing ransomware, demanding a ransom payment and disrupting school operations.

These targeted, K-12 attacks exemplify the risk facing schools across the nation.​
