February 2020 - Hacked

In July, four Louisiana public school districts were hit by computer hackers infecting networks with ransomware. In November, multiple state websites were cyberattacked, triggering a shutdown of servers and a disruption of some services. Just weeks later, the New Orleans’ mayor declared a state of emergency following a breach of the city’s entire computer network by ransomware software. So, how vulnerable are Louisiana’s computer systems to hacking? How can the state and its residents protect personal information from being compromised? And will conflicts with Iran lead to more aggressive cyberattacks against U.S. entities? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Hacked!” Wednesday, February 26 at 7pm on LPB and on WLAE in New Orleans.
