Cyberattacks lead to US college closure

Lincoln College has announced that it will close this week, likely as a result of a ransomware attack that took months to resolve.

While the disruption caused by COVID-19 played a role in the college’s closure, the cyberattack, which prevented access to recruitment and fundraising services for months, seems to have been the final nail in the coffin.

NBC has reported that Lincoln College in the first college or university in US history to close partly due to a cyberattack.
