The county is working to determine the nature and scope of any potentially impacted data
VANCOUVER – Clark County last month detected suspicious activity on the county network. The county, with the assistance of third-party specialists, immediately launched an investigation into the nature and scope of the activity. The investigation determined that the suspicious activity was the result of a sophisticated cyberattack. The county is working to determine the nature and scope of any potentially impacted data.
Clark County worked diligently to securely restore the functionality of its network. At this time, the county website has been restored and the network is secure. FAQs on the incident can be found on the county’s website.
“Clark County takes the security of our network and data very seriously,” said County Manager Kathleen Otto. “As soon as we discovered the suspicious activity, we took steps to confirm the security of the county network and launched an investigation.”
Clark County also engaged cybersecurity specialists to assist with the remediation, containment, and investigation of the event.
This is the most updated information available. Clark County will provide more information to the public as it becomes available.
