How schools are losing GCSE coursework in cyber attacks

A growing number of schools, colleges and universities have been hit by ransomware attacks over the past year.

The UK education sector has seen a rise in ransomware attacks.

Imagine losing someone's coursework. You know the student has poured hours and hours into it and then suddenly, it's gone.

Imagine the guilt you'd feel. Imagine having to tell the person. It'd be hard enough if you were the person's friend or relative, but what if you were the student's teacher and you were having to explain the school had lost it?

You may think that wouldn't happen but sadly it does - and it's because of ransomware attacks</
