You are looking at K12 Internet History from 1991 up to the present! No other K12 site on the net has been alive this long collecting our K12 information and bringing you up to what is happening now.
The EDTECH listserv mailing list was moved [aka what they call upgraded ] to H-NET where it went to die. It’s a fact that Mailing lists allow for easy replies. therefore, ease of conversation and continued community.
Blogs allow moderators to publish content just like a mailing list but readers won’t automatically get this in their email box unless they know to put their email address into the RSS feed.
The intended audience – the folks who were on the email list may not be aware that if they still want the email notification they will need to use the RSS feed now.
THE EMAIL MAILING LIST READER WHO IS USED TO GETTING EMAIL HAS TO BE SMART ENOUGH IN 2019 TO ENTER THEIR EMAIL INTO THE RSS FEED TO GET THE SAME INFO THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS NOW THE CAN’T JUST HIT REPLY.
THE READER HAS TO ACTUALLY CLICK ON THE BLOG TO THE ACTUAL BLOG ARTICLE / COMMENT TO REPLY.
THIS IS WHY BLOGS ARE HORRIBLE FOR THE READER WHO WANTS COMMUNITY.

2019 We are currently in a cyberwar.
Merck was attacked by ransomware in 2017.
Insurers paid $275 million to cover the insured portion of their loss from the NotPetya cyber attack < THE INSURED PORTION> We don’t know how much Merck had to pay for its uninsured losses. Merck’s insurance only cover ed some costs, they never revealed how much they had to pay to recover.
YOU WILL BE HACKED
IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS AND PAY INSURANCE
When you get hacked your Insurance Company will cite a common, but rarely used, clause in insurance contracts: the “war exclusion” which protects insurers from costs related to damage from war. Collateral damage in a cyberwar – Look up war games video. The Only Winning Move Is Not To Play.
A virus spreads across computer networks, encrypting hard drives so that machines cannot run. Attacks cause massive disruptions to industrial networks that rely on computers because businesses must individually replace damaged drives, a labor-intensive process.
Cyber insurance can be expensive to buy and is not widely used outside the United States, with one insurer previously describing the cost as $100,000 for $10 million in data breach insurance.
Policies typically cover expenses stemming from a data breach, such as forensics and data restoration, among other costs.
