K-12 SCHOOLS ARE EXPERIENCING A SIGNIFICANT RISE IN CYBER BREACHES

school cybersecurity

Data & Statistics reported/outlined by The K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center

2018 revealed that school districts are not immune to the same types of data breaches and cybersecurity incidents plaguing the most technologically advanced and well-resourced corporations and government agencies. During 2018, the misuse and abuse of school technology and IT systems resulted in 122 publicly-disclosed K-12 cybersecurity incidents (across 38 states, including NJ). This equates to a rate of about one new publicly-reported incident every three days. The actual circumstances are far worse, given many institutions do not report incidents.

Alarming Facts:

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO IDENTIFY ELDER FRAUD & FINANCIAL ABUSE?

Elder financial abuse

The Population Reference Bureau report, “Aging in the United States,” examines recent trends and disparities among adults ages 65 and older, and how baby boomers born between 1946 and 1964 will reshape America’s older population.  The number of Americans ages 65 and over is expected to exceed 98 million by 2060, increasing their share of the total population to 24%. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), elder financial abuse and fraud costs to older Americans range from $2.9 billion to $36.5 billion annually. As the 65 and over population grows, elder financial abuse and fraud totals are also likely to increase.

China – Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution U.S. Citizens

Travel Alert SERAPH

Exercise increased caution in China due to arbitrary enforcement of local laws as well as special restrictions on dual U.S.-Chinese nationals.

Chinese authorities have asserted broad authority to prohibit U.S. citizens from leaving China by using ‘exit bans,’ sometimes keeping U.S. citizens in China for years. China uses exit bans coercively:

  • to compel U.S. citizens to participate in Chinese government investigations,
  • to lure individuals back to China from abroad, and
  • to aid Chinese authorities in resolving civil disputes in favor of Chinese parties.

TRAVEL 5 Ways to Avoid Bedbugs on Planes

Travel Alert SERAPH

Sorry to give you one more thing to worry about while flying, but bedbug infestations have recently broken out in the sky. It turns out the pests love infrequently cleaned planes nearly as much as they do hotel rooms. I interviewed Dr. Richard Cooper, the Senior Director of Service for Terminix, to find out how you can protect yourself from bedbugs on planes.

Educate Yourself

It’s hard to avoid bedbugs if you don’t know what they look like. Dr. Cooper advises, “These insects are wingless, range in color from a light brown as immatures to a reddish-brown as adults, and range in size from as small as 1/32 of an inch upon hatching from the egg to a quarter-inch as adults. All stages are visible [to] the naked eye.”
