Hartnell College says they could have their network fixed and up and running as early as next week after a ransomware attack disrupted their systems on Oct. 2nd. The incident prompted a manual network shutdown while third-party forensic incident response specialists and federal law enforcement agents investigated the incident. The college’s IT department has provided alternate internet access for classrooms, got their telephones working again and also checked computers before reconnecting them to the network. Dr. Chelsy Pham, the vice president of information and technology resources said, “My team will be working all weekend installing additional security patches on laptops, or replacing those that can’t support them. And they will be assisted by IT specialists from the Monterey County Office of Education, Monterey Peninsula College, Riverside College, and CSUMB, who all offered their assistance. We are so grateful for our colleagues’ support.” Employees at the college will also be given additional cybersecurity training. During the attack, most programs and systems at the college continued with little disruption. For instance, the college website, the learning platform, electronic resources in the library, and emergency notification systems were all working. On top of this, classes and athletic events continue as scheduled.
