“Hackers Target Schools,” The Wall Street Journal, October 24, 2017 A3.  Cyberthefts and ransomware attacks at a whole host of schools, targeting data on students, as well as the normal financial stuff.

So, how much money should schools spend to prevent hacking and subsequent release of student data?  And isn’t it nice of the news media to report how much ransom the attackers got?

So, whose data is it, anyway?  And who’s the custodian?
