  • 1.  Lincoln College closes after 157 years, blaming COVID-19 and cyberattack disruptions

    Posted 10 days ago
    After withstanding the 1918 influenza pandemic, the Great Depression, and World War II, Lincoln College is closing for good on Friday after falling victim to the COVID-19 pandemic and a cyberattack.
    In 2022 alone, at least 14 US colleges and nine school districts have been hit by ransomware demands. The education sector is particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks since they face security challenges for the first time and have to design their security networks with barely any IT experience.
