CYBER ALERT: K-12 Distance Learning Education Being Targeted by Cyber Actors

Original release date: December 10, 2020 This Joint Cybersecurity Advisory was coauthored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).
