Criminal Cyberattack Investigation Update

KINGMAN, Ariz. – At this time, the forensic analyses are pinpointing whether this originated from a specific employee’s email or a link to a corrupted website. Some of the steps in the investigative process are working to confirm where the cyberattack originated. The city is insured against this type of cyberattack, and we are working closely with different agencies and an insurance provider to conduct the forensic investigation.

At this time, the city is still working to discover the extent of the event and trying to discover if any information has been compromised. The city has a legal obligation to inform any customers or internal team members if their information has been exposed. The forensic investigation into the discovery of exposed or compromised data is a huge undertaking, as there is an immense amount of data to be analyzed.

Although certain emails may seem legitimate at first glance, it is more important than ever for people to be vigilant regarding emails they receive, because criminal cyberattacks can attack individuals, cities, and also large corporations. The city is still working on the investigation and we will keep updating residents as information becomes available.

The City of Kingman government operations are close to fully operational after the February cyberattack. The City of Kingman is categorizing this as a criminal cyberattack; the city never lost control of our network.
