The County of Delaware recently discovered a disruption to portions of its computer network. We commenced an immediate investigation that included taking certain systems offline and working with computer forensic specialists to determine the nature and scope of the event. We are working diligently to restore the functionality of our systems.
The investigation is ongoing and we are working with computer forensic specialists to understand the full nature and scope of the event and confirm accurate information before sharing the details. County employees have been notified and provided with information and instructions.
The Bureau of Elections and the County's Emergency Services Department were not impacted.
The Bureau of Elections and Emergency Services are separate computer networks from The County of Delaware and there is no evidence they were impacted by the disruption.
The County is working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and will provide updates when they are available. Thank you for your patience as we work to restore the functionality of our systems.
