New Orleans Cyber Attack Costs Surpass $7 Million

The City of New Orleans is still working on recovery efforts a full month after a Ransomware attack took down their systems.

"We’re looking maybe at a six to eight month window before actual normalcy starts to integrate all of our systems.”

The attack's costs have surpassed $7 million and are expected to rise further.

“Now, we’re in the stabilization period. We are trying to rebuild what we had to turn off essentially and that is a long, laborious, time-sensitive process."

And for residents concerned about their taxes:
"The deadline to pay property taxes has been pushed back to February 14 because of the cyber attack."

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