Posted by IN Cybersecurity Task Force on 11/7/2019

Indiana's Educational CyberSecurity Task Force has worked with the IDOE and the Indiana Information Sharing and Analysis Center (IN ISAC) to develop the document linked below to make your school district aware of a known cyber threat that has affected K-12 districts in the state of Louisiana and a yet un-named state. This event has created significant impact on instruction in these states, and can be prevented. The Louisiana incident led to the governor issuing a state of emergency and school districts losing data, experiencing downtime and significant expense. In order to prevent such an event for schools in the state of indiana, these recommendations along with other preventable measures should be considered by your leadership and IT services teams.
