Albany Mayor says city is still working to restore services following cyberattack

Local

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan gave an update to the press on Wednesday about the city’s continuing effort to restore services following a cyberattack last month.

Mayor Sheehan says the cyberattack is still impacting services like birth and death certificates. Marriage licenses were also affected, but the service is now back up and running.

Sheehan stressed that no personal information was stolen during the cyberattack. The issue, she says is one of rebuilding the data that was lost in the attack.

“The issue is we have a number of options from which to choose for rebuilding the data that was lost,” said Sheehan. “So we need to determine the most cost effective and efficient way to do that.”

Sheehan did not give any estimates on how much the cyber-attack has cost the city so far.
