Schools across the U.S. remain fertile targets for hackers, with a slate of K-12 entities contending with cyberattacks and data thefts following the holiday season.

Since the start of the year, a handful of schools have reported data breaches including Butte School District in Montana, Edmonds School District in Washington, Fullerton Joint Union High School District and Glendale Unified School District in California.

Other school districts, like Ohio’s Groveport Madison Schools, are in the process of recovering from ransomware incidents.

Officials at the school district told Recorded Future News that it took them about a month to restore their systems following a ransomware attack discovered on December 5.
