As of Friday February 26, 2021, the City of Kingman became aware of a cyber-attack throughout the entire computer system. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security, and Arizona National Guard Cyber Joint Task Force, under the Department of Emergency Management and Military Affairs (DEMA), has been in contact with the City of Kingman to combat this issue. The Arizona National Guard Cyber Joint Task Force has been onsite with the City of Kingman Information Technology team as of Saturday, February 27.

At this time, the city has no access to email and can work with customers through phone calls and in-person only. Some operations will be manual only, and some operations will not be able to be completed until systems are back up and running; at this point it is unknown when all systems will be fully functional. Once again, the Municipal Court is unaffected.

The city is continuing to work to discover the extent of the event. The criminal investigation is ongoing, and we will update the public as we work with the AZ National Guard Cyber Joint Task Force.

The City of Kingman appreciates the quick action of the Governor’s Office and the expertise offered by the AZ National Guard Cyber Joint Task Force.
