The 2020-2021 pandemic rapidly accelerated technology use in education by forcing schools to expand online learning and support district operations. This shift showcased greater online activity that brought technology’s educational opportunities and other advantages into the spotlight. It also highlighted the serious and growing challenges associated with digital learning, including rising cyberattacks on school district networks.  These attacks can seriously disrupt operations and compromise sensitive teacher and student data. Cybersecurity is not a new problem, but there has been an exponential growth and persistent sophistication of cyberattacks targeting school districts of all sizes.
