UK: Six UK schools hit by cyberattack on multi-academy trust

Matthew Gooding reports:

cyberattack on a multi-academy trust which runs schools serving 4,500 pupils has left staff without access to digital systems for more than a week, Tech Monitor understands.

The Scholars’ Education Trust suffered the breach last week, and at the time of writing many of its internal systems remain offline. The trust runs six schools in Hertfordshire – Buntingford First School, Harpenden Academy, Priory Academy, Robert Barclay Academy, Samuel Ryder Academy and Sir John Lawes School.


At the time of this publication, DataBreaches did see the IT issues notice on the Samuel Ryder Academy dated today, but the other school sites did not seem to have any notices posted.
