These incidents are primarily financially driven but always opportunistic, whereby the attacker takes advantage of system weaknesses such as unpatched software, weak peripheral security, poor authentication systems or the susceptibility of users to misdirection.
Ultimately, the attackers rely on a school’s inability to protect and recover their systems and data.
