Town of Poughkeepsie faces cyber attack, recovers quickly

“The Town of Poughkeepsie responded quickly to a cyber attack targeting Town Hall the prior weekend, Town Supervisor Rebecca Edwards revealed during the town board’s regular meeting on February 21, 2024. “

“In her remarks, Edwards detailed the incident that unfolded in the early hours of Monday morning, Feb. 19, indicating that at 2:02 a.m., the town’s networks fell victim to what she termed a “cyber event.” “

“Acknowledging the gravity of the situation, Edwards commended the swift response of the town’s consultants at CSI and its IT team, particularly Tim Mard, who led efforts to shut down servers promptly in a bid to mitigate potential damage and worked for nearly 22 hours straight to ensure the security of the network. “
