Taos School Zone played a critical role

Katharine Egli.Taos Superintendant Lillian Torrez

Taos Municipal Schools District has been hard at work addressing a ransomware attack that knocked out the district's digital services almost three weeks ago.

On Feb. 28, Taos Schools suffered a cyber attack, with hackers demanding $5,000 in cash as ransom for the return of the control to their digital services. Emails, class instruction and the district website were disabled as part of the attack, which has been mostly resolved according to school officials Thursday (March 21).
