PENNCREST School District Responds to Cybersecurity Incident

“Over the weekend, the PENNCREST School District became aware of a situation, believed to be a ransomware event, which has disrupted certain aspects of our operations. We quickly took steps to implement our Cybersecurity Incident Response Plan. Following our plan, we shut down and disconnected the entire network and technology infrastructure. We are now working diligently with external cybersecurity specialists to conduct a thorough forensic investigation into the nature and scope of the event and to securely restore operations. At this time, we have not identified evidence of any data loss, data access, or data theft as a result of this event. Our primary focus is to ensure there is no interruption to any learning activity. Our investigation into the event is in its very early stages and we do not have much information to share. We appreciate your patience as we respond to this event, and we will continue to keep you updated as our forensic investigation progresses, and new information becomes available.”

Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
