cyber security malware ransomware Artic Wolf Crowdstrike BISD | #ransomware | #cybercrime

BRANCH COUNTY — Branch Intermediate School District Technology Director Aaron Cummings will review and negotiate with firms providing 24-hour cyber security for the district rather than bid on the services.  

The BISD board found the complexity of determining what services are needed and which best fit the district did not lend to standard bidding even with an estimated cost of $40,000.  

BISD Superintendent Kris Jenkins said districts across the state are increasing computer security after ransomware infected the Jackson Intermediate School District last year. 

Homeland Security identifies ransomware as malware designed to encrypt files on a device, rendering any files and the systems that rely on them unusable. Malicious actors then demand ransom in exchange for decryption.
