Data breaches in large corporations and businesses make news headlines every week. It may surprise you to learn that small businesses and non-profits, like independent schools, are increasingly becoming attractive targets for cybercriminals. “Increasingly, we see more small- and mid-size businesses impacted who often tend to underestimate their exposure. They all need to continuously invest in strengthening their cyber controls,” as noted in the 2023 Allianz Risk Barometer. Even the smallest of schools are vulnerable to malicious attacks, not for financial information, but for the proliferation of personally identifiable information. In 2021, 82% of attacks impacted organizations with fewer than 1000 employees.
It’s not a matter of if your school will be breached, but when. Many schools in our region understand the importance of purchasing cybersecurity insurance, but how many have filled out the forms correctly so that claims won’t be denied?
