They Love to Store Personal Info, They Just Can’t Be Bothered to Secure It

How many kids have credit monitoring? For their entire lives they are going to be troubled by possible identity theft. Report: K-12 Schools Experienced 122 Cyber Attacks in 2018.

For instance, in December, it was discovered that the personal data of more than 500,000 students and staff in the San Diego Unified School District were stolen over an 11-month period. The data included names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, mailing and home addresses, phone numbers, health information and legal notices.

How much do you think the administrators worry about Security? “Oh, those IT folks, they always want to spend money on something.” So the bad guys have all that info. What do you think they are going to do with it?

Actually it looks like suburban districts are targeted more than inner city schools.
