A ransomware attack of an area school system’s network did not result in a breach of student data.
Northwestern Consolidated Schools Superintendent Chris Hoke issued a release following the attack which happened Sunday night. It resulted in a loss of computer operations at the Triton Central schools on Monday. However, Hoke says the school system began housing confidential student data on secure offsite servers approximately three years ago. The breach only impacted the locally managed and maintained servers.
Campus computer operations and the local network were restored.
Anyone with questions or concerns can contact the superintendent’s office.
