Recent Ransomware Attacks

A reporter from the Pew Charitable Trusts with whom I’ve worked for several years is trying to develop a story on what, if anything, local governments are doing in response to this weekend’s cyber security/ransomware attacks. If your local government has taken any actions in response to these attacks, please let me know. We’re trying to get a sense of what’s happening on the local government front.

Thanks much!

Even before this weekend, we've increased the emphasis on computer security as part of our new employee orientation, instituted formal end user security training for existing employees and now send out reminders to all employees to not open unknown emails. Information Services has taken additional steps such as real time cloud backup of critical data, country blocking at the firewall, and administrative rights restrictions
