Suffolk County, NY Victim of a Cybersecurity Shut Down!

By | September 20, 2022

Suffolk County Is Down!

12 days! Computer access at Suffolk County, New York has been down for 12 days.

But is Suffolk County merely the tip of the cyber intrusion iceberg?

This may come as a surprise to some, but for those living or with an interest in Suffolk County, and who are in urgent need to source documents or information for a variety of issues including real estate transactions, it’s a big deal!

That said Suffolk County real estate closings, under the correct conditions, are still taking place at Hallmark Abstract Service!

But if Suffolk County has become the target of a cyberattack, the question is how many municipalities and other government entities on the local, state, and federal levels are vulnerable to something similar occurring? One can only imagine the potential ramifications!

Perhaps we won’t know until we know, but for political leaders, money needs to be spent proactively on cybersecurity, rather than the more typical reactive position after the damage has already been done!

In other words, decision making by commission rather than by omission.
