HAMDEN — The town’s information technology products and services had been “compromised” early Thursday, prompting a restoration hard work, according to the administration of Mayor Lauren Garrett.

Sean Grace, Garrett’s chief of employees, said in a assertion that the town’s unexpected emergency solutions have been unaffected, but much less essential capabilities have been impacted.

“Our crew immediately shut the program down to defend against further compromise. We have contracted with a restoration specialist and are doing work with legislation enforcement investigators to securely get our method up and jogging,” Grace said. “Our emergency solutions are uninterrupted. Non unexpected emergency services will be accessible as shortly as possible.”

Officers will offer you updates as the recovery approach proceeds, Grace said.
