Vermont schools lag on cybersecurity while risks hit home with $50K fraud from Pownal

 


A cyber thief infiltrated a Vermont supervisory union's computer network and made a $50,000 transfer out of a school bank account, but safe guards on the account alerted staff members to take action.

"A more sophisticated thief or hacker could have spent the time to turn off alerts, make all bank emails go directly to the junk folder, and give the crime time to be effective," Phil Susmann, cyber security expert and president of Norwich University's Applied Research Institutes wrote about the stealthy attack.
