Abstract: 

Has anyone considered his/her family information going viral and through his/her trusted, chosen school district? This is an age where a mis-sent e-mail with student data can represent enormous liabilities, and a lost laptop can cause newspaper headlines. School institutes are facing new cyber security challenges in the Information Age. A number of school institutes were grappling with the loss of confidential information and protecting students on the Internet. How should school authorities react in case of data breach? What should they do to prevent data breaches at schools? What are upcoming trends in cybersecurity? The purpose of this chapter is to explore data breaches at K-12 schools as well as to examine the ways to improve cybersecurity. In this chapter, the researchers attempt to provide suggestions, solutions, and recommendations on cybersecurity after examining the problems of data breaches.
