Harvey County's public services have been restored to full operation following the restoration of its computer network.

A cyberattack discovered on Feb. 4 disabled a limited portion of the network. Backup systems and network security limited the extent of the cyberattack.

The cybercrime did not interrupt operations to any emergency services. However, other departments worked through limited services as the network was restored.

"We purposely took a meticulous approach to reinstating the network, ensuring information was safe and instituting additional protocols to help prevent future cybercrimes," said Harvey County Administrator Anthony Swartzendruber. "Moving forward, we will continue to review the incident and examine our procedures to identify additional opportunities for network security."
