At the beginning of October 2022, our institute, the DIPF, fell victim to a cyber attack. It became thus part of what is now a very long list of institutions affected, not just in Germany but internationally. Education Worldwide took the opportunity to research the topic of cybercrime in the field of education. It turned out that education is one of the most popular targets for hackers around the world. The sources we compiled for our webdossier will tell you the reasons for this, it will present you facts and statistics, and it will show you some examples of how different countries are dealing with this problem in the education sector.
