Today's Newsletter: Why is the FBI Thinking About You?

Publish date:

The FBI certainly is busy these days. Besides all that "other stuff" going on, the agency released this announcement last week alerting the public to cyber threat concerns specifically in regards to students: "Malicious use of sensitive data could result in social engineering, bullying, tracking, identity theft, or other means for targeting children. Therefore, the FBI is providing awareness to schools and parents of the important role cybersecurity plays in the securing of student information and devices." The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) followed up with a supporting document stuffed with resources for districts looking to better secure their systems. We'll be digging through this for the next few weeks as this issue will certainly be close to the top of trends for 2019.
