North Carolina County Still Guarding Cyber Attack Details

Government Technology

(TNS) — The Scotland County Board of Commissioners is staying tightlipped about the details of the "cyber incident" that cybersecurity officials have been working to get under control since Dec. 18.

Board Chairman Tim Ivey said Monday that as VC3, the county's information technology service provider, and other state cyber officials work to correct the incident, the county is withholding information on the matter.

"We get a lot of questions asked about what's going on with the computers and we can't answer it. I don't want people to think something is being swept under the rug," Ivey said.

"If you tell too much of what's being done then whoever's done it will — they know the group who done it — will know how to get around that so they don't want to tell that until it's all completed," Ivey said.
