Hackers increasingly target Czech schools’ online sessions

The number of cyberattacks on online teaching and other videoconferencing sessions is growing, Czech authorities have warned.

The Ministry of Education is instructing schools to use guidelines prepared by the National Office for Cyber and Information Security (NÚKIB) for holding secure videoconferencing sessions. These include not giving login details and personal data to others.

According to a report by Check Point Research, cyberattacks have grown by 24 percent in Europe in recent months, as more people use technology at home due to anti-coronavirus measures.
