Until now, K-12 IT professionals have been slow to adopt protections against ransomware, perhaps thinking that they are unlikely to be targeted, but since a K-12 user base includes young people and children, it is an especially tempting target since young users are simply less mindful of potential consequences and more likely to open suspicious email and attachments which is how most attacks begin. With the right combination of protective measures, however, it is entirely possible to block most attacks—and to render powerless those few that that may penetrate your network. Learn how to detect, prevent and recover from ransomware attacks from the trusted leader in K-12 IT Security – Barracuda Networks.
