U.S. Senator Gary Peters (D-MI), Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, released the following statement applauding the first comprehensive report by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) on how K-12 schools can improve their cybersecurity defenses. The report was required by a bipartisan law written by Peters to enhance cybersecurity assistance to K-12 educational institutions across the country:

"This report is an important step to helping K-12 schools across the country protect themselves against cyber-attacks that put the personal information of students and staff at risk. K-12 schools are increasingly targeted by criminal hackers, and this new resource from CISA makes easy-to-understand guidance about cybersecurity risks readily available to the schools that need it most. I was proud to author the law requiring this report, and I will continue working to tackle evolving cybersecurity threats."
