Is your school’s data secure?
On the 28th April this year an Australian private school was the victim of a cyber-attack that denied access to computer systems, encrypted databases and deleted backups.
A recent Telstra survey found that of 300 Australian companies surveyed, 48% had experienced a cyber attack in the past 12 months.
Of the survey respondents who suffered an attack, 81% experienced a ransom incident and 51% of them paid it, with the majority saying they would pay again to recover their data.
These statistics show how valuable your data really is to your daily business operations and highlight the impact of not protecting a school community’s personal and financial data.
