AUGUSTA (WFXG)—School districts across the county are staying online or shifting that way at the start of this new semester. It leaves them increasingly vulnerable to cyber criminals looking to make a quick buck.

“It’s only when that particular threat manifests and all of those files are locked down does anyone realize that something’s happened,” said Sarah Rees, the director of the cyber workforce academy at the Georgia Cyber Center.

As schools shift online, it has created a world of opportunity for cyber criminals.
