Baltimore County’s Board of Education has approved more than $1.7 million in contracts for services required following the crippling ransomware attack on school systems in November. Administrators told board members Tuesday that they expect the school system’s cyber insurance to reimburse up to $2 million for direct costs caused by the ransomware attack and up to $3 million in cyber liability coverage. The attack took place the day before Thanksgiving and canceled classes for students for five days.
