…. I am pleased to introduce and launch the K-12 Cyber Incident Map.

It is a visualization of cybersecurity-related incidents reported about U.S. K-12 public schools and districts from 2016 to the present. ‘Cyber’ incidents tracked on the map, include: (a) phishing attacks resulting in the disclosure of personal data; (b) other unauthorized disclosures, breaches or hacks resulting in the disclosure of personal data; (c) ransomware attacks; (d) denial-of-service attacks; and (e) other cyber incidents resulting in school disruptions and unauthorized disclosures.

Painstakingly assembled from public reports, it was created to begin to build a data-based awareness of the scope and variety of digital security and privacy threats facing K-12 public schools and districts, as well as to shed a light on the need for uniform standards for disclosing cyber incidents affecting schools, students, and educators.
