TPSO Reports on Cyber Attacks on School Board and Sheriff's Office

Yesterday (August 12, 2019), Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards reported on the recent attack
on the Tangipahoa Parish School Board and the possible compromise by ransomware of the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office operating network. 

However, as a result of measures taken to enhance the security of the TPSO's file backup system, no system data, crime data or file system data was lost or affected.

Sheriff Edwards reports that such attacks can result in more than monetary losses and network systems damage, it puts public safety and individual welfare at risk -- not to mention the exposure of highly sensitive and critical data.
