K-12 cyber maturity improving, but still lags behind other sectors

Cybersecurity capabilities across K-12 schools improved slightly during the 2021-22 school year, with many districts focusing more acutely on identity management and cyber hygiene training, according to a report published Monday by the Center for Internet Security.

Nearly one-fifth of K-12 districts nationwide commit less than 1% of their overall technology budgets to cybersecurity, and many districts are still not availing themselves of low-cost and free services that could fill the gaps, the report found.

Lindsay McKenzie has the story.
