Acknowledging recent reports of ransomware targeting educational institutions, it is no wonder that there have also been articles that attempt to lure in readers with “free” tools. What is disappointing is that these “free” tools are little more than marketing pieces that direct you to click on readily available documentation from Microsoft or Google. Additionally, the frameworks on which these guides are based are freely available via the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST).

It’s important to note that the educational community is a target for cybercriminals and not just from a ransomware angle.
