The mayor thanked city officials and supporting agencies in helping to remedy the situation.
“I believe the bleeding stopped much faster than what it could have been had, had Rick really not been all over that. His communication with me on Sunday was top notch, letting me know this is what’s going on. This is what I know. This is what we’re going to do. This is what I know so far,” said Huber Heights Mayor Jeff Gore.
At this time, dispatchers remain working in their temporary space.
The city continues to work with private companies and other law enforcement to handle this issue. They have also been working with the FBI and Secret Service to collect data for prosecuting whoever launched the ransomware attack.
