HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) — The ransomware attack that struck the area about five months ago took weeks and thousands of dollars to recover from. The city of Huber Heights will be sharing lessons learned from the attack at today’s cybersecurity forum.

The Nov. 12 attack impacted over 5,000 residents along with multiple services throughout the city. About half of the impacted residents received up to a year of credit monitoring.

In continuing to address the attack, Huber Heights City Manager Richard Dzik will speak prominently at this month’s “Go-Cyber Collective” meeting.

At the meeting, the city manager will detail the cyber-attack from last November, the response from the city and takeaways for the future.

The meeting will be held today at the Secure Cyber Defense Headquarters beginning at 8 a.m. Secure Cyber’s CEO Shawn Waldman is scheduled to speak as well.

Waldman previosuly spoke with 2 NEWS in February after a mass outage impacted a Dayton-area pharmacy.
