This week a Yorkshire school was hit by a ransomware attack that meant they were forced to close their doors for the day on Tuesday 22nd October.
All 750 pupils were asked to stay at home whilst the school ensured their systems were back up and running and most importantly safe and secure.
The attack was discovered on the morning of Monday 21st October and disabled all of their systems. This also meant that the school were unable to contact parents to send the pupils home after the attack was found. Read the full article here.
