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.

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.
