U. Arizona teams with WeWork

The University of Arizona this week announced a new partnership with WeWork to give international students access to workspaces in their home countries.

Betsy Foresman has the story.

Looking back at 2020's cyberattacks

Cyberattacks are on the rise everywhere, but educational institutions are especially vulnerable, evidenced both anecdotally by high-profile incidents and by research revealing rising frequency and financial impact of attacks. Universities are vulnerable because of their decentralized structure and their need to cater to a diverse group of users that includes researchers, students who are increasingly connecting from off campus, community groups, faculty and administrators. K-12 institutions are similarly vulnerable, though often more from a shortage of resources and expertise, as their administrators focus their efforts on educational concerns, not technological ones.

Penn State opens on-campus COVID-19 center

To better mitigate and monitor the spread of COVID-19, Pennsylvania State University on Monday opened a new testing lab that will be used for random, daily COVID-19 testing of its students on campus. The Penn State Testing and Surveillance Center, or TASC, will test students who have been selected at random to help the university identify asymptomatic carriers of the virus and monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 on campus. The opening follows a trend marked by similar openings at other universities, including Ohio State University, Vanderbilt University and the State University of New York at Buffalo. Betsy has the details.

Ransomware delayed Hartford Public Schools

Hartford Public Schools, a pre-K-12 district with about 18,000 students, has delayed the reopening of classes after a ransomware attack disrupted many of the online services it uses. At a news conference Tuesday, Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin called the incident “the most extensive and significant” cyberattack to hit the city in the last five years, with more than 200 of the city’s 300 computer servers were affected by the incident. Officials said they're not sure yet when they'll be able to reopen classes. Sean Lygaas has more on CyberScoop.
