Moss Point School District Selects Intellinetics’ YellowFolder for Ransomware Protection
Improves cybersecurity resiliency, compliance, and business continuity
COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intellinetics, Inc. (NYSE American: INLX), a digital transformation solutions provider, announces the Moss Point School District in Mississippi implemented Intellinetics’ YellowFolder solution to mitigate ransomware attacks, improve FERPA/HIPAA compliance, and enhance district continuity plans. YellowFolder is a cloud-based records management system specifically built for K-12 schools for the secure storage, retrieval, and management of the district’s student, special education, employee, and administrative records.
Malicious cyber actors are frequently targeting K–12 schools with ransomware and malware attacks. Intrusions can have a massive impact on school operations, from restricted access to data and their networks, delayed exams and canceled school days to the theft of personal information belonging to school staff and students. These attacks often lead to high recovery costs.
Dr. Oswago Harper, Superintendent Moss Point School District, stated, “As part of our continuing mission to mitigate cybersecurity risk in our district, we are pleased to find a trusted partner who understands the threat and unique business needs within K-12 information systems and has the solutions to reduce the risk of a damaging intrusion.”
“Prior to Moss Point School District, I was working at another area district that suffered from a ransomware attack,” added Brenda Marshall, MTSS Consultant for Moss Point School District. “After experiencing the problems of not having a secure electronic data storage platform there, it was natural to recommend Moss Point School District implement YellowFolder. The system securely protects our records, allows us to be FERPA/HIPAA compliant, and many of their team members are former educators and provide top notch service.”
“K-12 organizations are under continued threat from malicious cyber criminals and the negative impact they can have on a school system’s ability to carry out its educational mission and protect sensitive school, student, and personnel data,” stated James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics. “Our K-12 division, led by a team of education veterans, delivers solutions specifically designed for school districts including our YellowFolder cloud-based records management software, digital forms, business process outsourcing, and document scanning services. By leveraging our people and technology to help schools address their cybersecurity risks, we will continue to expand our market share in the K-12 sector.”
