    Another Government Organization Hit by Ransomware [posted:20 Dec 2019]

    Just recently, the City of Galt was hit by ransomware, following on the heels of the City of New Orleans cyber attack which occurred just the week before.  We are taking preventive measures here at SUSD to protect our systems, yet we all must remain vigilant of suspicious emails.  Unfortunately, school districts are also a major target, this is the new norm.

    Thank you.
