Episode 5. Our Schools. Hacked
The start of the academic year in 2022 was meant to be a return to a sense of normality, after the Covid-19 pandemic had caused 2 years of disruption. But another virus struck, this time digital, and brought fears of financial loss, fraud, legal action, reputational damage and much more seriously, threats to safety. In this final episode of True Cybercrime Stories, Adrian Lester finds out how notorious cyber criminal groups targeted the education sector with attacks against schools, not just in the UK, but around the world.
