According to sources, Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (a Public Safety organization in Florida) was hit with a cyber attack. It was first reported on 2024-04-04.

Florida Department of Juvenile Justice computer network hacked

“Hackers broke into the computer network of the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice in Tallahassee, which runs the state's juvenile detention centers and programs to steer troubled kids away from crime. It led to a continuing shutdown of the digital backbone the agency uses to manage cases statewide.“

“The department took offline some of its computer systems as early as March 29 due to what spokeswoman Amanda Slama described as an unspecified security concern, she confirmed in a statement Thursday afternoon, two days after a reporter’s initial inquiries about the matter. “

“Slama said the affected systems include the Juvenile Justice Information System, the backbone for the entire agency. "We are still assessing the situation," Slama said in a statement. "Protecting the integrity of our systems is our top priority." “
