On July 24, 2019, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency in response to ransomware attacks that targeted three of the state’s school districts: Monroe City, Sabine Parish and Morehouse Parish. Additional attacks in East Carroll Parish and Tangipahoa Parish school districts soon followed after the state of emergency declaration.
