Louisiana School Cyberattacks Trigger State Of Emergency
JULY 28, 2019
Louisiana has declared a state of emergency after a series of cyberattacks impacted three of the state’s school districts. The attacks shut down the districts’ phones, as well as locked and encrypted files and computer equipment in school districts in Sabine, Morehouse and Ouachita parishes in North Louisiana. The state was made aware of a malware attack on a few north Louisiana school systems and we have been coordinating a response ever since,” Edwards said.
