Cyberattacks target New Mexico school districts
In January, Albuquerque public schools were forced to cancel classes because of a district-wide cyber-attack. Most recently, Fort Sumner municipal schools were hit by a similar attack. Tony Sabaj is a cybersecurity expert, and he says attacks like these aren't going anywhere because hackers have found school districts as a prime target.
Sabaj says, "People do need to be concerned about the amount of, you know, the amount of data that is just online. The school, by nature, is going to have somewhat sensitive information about the students. They will have address names, possibly photos that are part of school IDs."
