Last week, several headlines articles were posted to cybersecurity and information technology sites that impact Crowder users.
First, please update your iOS and macOS Apple devices. Apple has recently patched several flaws in their software that are known to be actively exploited.

Second, a recent report by Sophos and AtlasVPN found education to be the most targeted industry by ransomware attacks. Similarly, a recent article noted a large increase in ransomware attacks against schools and universities in August. While this is typical with the start of the school year, it is a good reminder to stay cautious when interacting with email and webpages and to stay constantly vigilant to help protect Crowder.
