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.

Two middle school students in Florida were arrested Tuesday after they concocted a “plot to kill students” via a variety of weapons, including a pizza cutter, police said.

The girls — ages 11 and 12 years old — “wanted to kill at least 15 people,” Bartown Police Chief Joe Hall said at a news conference Wednesday. The two “were waiting in the bathroom for (an) opportunity to find smaller kids that they could overpower to be their victims.”

Both girls were searched in a Bartow Middle School office, where a butcher knife was located on one of the students. Knives, scissors and a pizza cutter were also found, according to Fox 13.

In May the Brick Township Police Department and Brick Township School District partnered with national school safety firm SERAPH to provide training for a School Safety and Special Education assessment. This program led to the Township securing a federal School Violence Prevention Program grant in the amount of $469,281.

The SCHOOL SECURITY MANAGEMENT AUDIT – SCHOOL SAFETY ASSESSMENT CERTIFICATION PROGRAM provides school officials with training in the planning and execution of a Federal level [U.S. Department of Education] audit of special education, school security equipment, management systems and polices as they relate to the proper management of a safe school environment.

“The program is unique because it allows a school and local police department to learn how a correct audit is to be performed,” states SERAPH CEO Dale Yeager.
