1. 20 Texas cities attacked by ransomware
The City of Borger, along with 20 other Texas municipalities, recently suffered a ransomware attack that disabled the city’s ability to conduct business. The attack was part of a targeted effort, and it cut off access to basic city services like public records, bill payments and communications systems. The city has been able to restore several functions without paying the ransom, but several services remain unavailable.
Many public entities such as cities and counties struggle to implement adequate cyber security solutions. DiamondIT works closely with municipalities to manage their networks within restrained budgets and long planning cycles.
