Atlanta-area County Suffering from Cyber Attack

As if the state of Georgia hadn't experienced enough cyber pains, the county of Rockdale announced an attack hit its water department.

"The attack happened after an employee opened an email with an infected attachment and the ransomware has infected up to nine county servers."

While the attack seems limited to the water department, the county is still waiting on more information to determine its response.

“I can assure you the necessary decisions will be made as it relates to what needs to happen to keep the lights on in Rockdale County," Rockdale County Commission Chair Oz Nesbit said

As cyber criminals keep getting better, more organizations are turning to INFIMA's fully automated Cyber Security Training to keep their teams safe.
