Seattle times published an article about the Town’s cyberincident. Below is the Town’s statement on the article.
“As unfortunate as the 2017 wire transfer fraud and cyber-attack on the Town’s systems were, the representation in the Times article was fairly accurate. Both of the issues were discussed openly and thoroughly in Town Council meetings over the last 6 months, so the news is not new. Procedures and systems have already been put in place to prevent wire fraud from ever happening again and to strengthen the Town’s internal financial controls, and we have installed the latest technologies to protect the Town’s internal systems from being compromised by cyber-attacks.”
