Jacksonville Beach continued to grapple with computer issues following a cybersecurity event, with some functions still offline a week later. Tyler Chancey, Director of Cybersecurity for Scarlett Group, highlighted the increasing frequency of such attacks on municipalities.
"I would say these attacks are on the rise," said Chancey, emphasizing the increasing frequency of cyber threats, particularly targeting municipalities due to the sensitive data they possess.
While progress has been made, including regained email access and operational workarounds, full recovery efforts are ongoing. Chancey emphasized the importance of cybersecurity measures and recovery plans in addressing such incidents.
