The data was likely obtained from DISB’s STAR system client in late March 2024 which was maintained by Tyler Technologies. The incident is under investigation.

County officials said they saw no evidence of exfiltration of data/files. The incident is still under investigation.   

How It Could Affect Your Business: Government agencies and departments at every level have been prime targets for bad actors in the last 12 months.

British Columbia-based London Drugs disclosed that it has experienced a cybersecurity incident that resulted in the temporary closure of all 79 of its retail stores across Canada.

The incident remains under investigation.

Risk to Business: 2.376 = Severe

UK carpet retailer Carpetright fell victim to a cyberattack last week that disrupted operations including customer order processing.

Employees were left unable to access their payroll information, customer service phone lines were knocked out and customers experienced order fulfillment delays.

How it Could Affect Your Business: Every second counts in a cyberattack, so finding ways to speed up incident response is critical.


UK – City of Leicester (England)


Exploit: Hacking

City of Leicester (England): Municipal Government

cybersecurity news represented by a gauge indicating moderate risk


Risk to Business: 1.866 = Moderate

A March 7, 2024, cyberattack on the city of Leicester has left the city’s streetlights on 24/7. In the wake of the attack, many city offices were left without phone and computer systems. Those systems have since been restored, but the issue of the perpetually on streetlights has not yet been solved. City officials said that the problem was caused by the shutdown of IT systems in the wake of the cyberattack. That shutdown left city workers unable to access the inner workings of the city’s lighting system, which is set to keep the lights on all the time in default mode. Bad actors were also able to snatch an indeterminate amount of data. The INC ransomware group has claimed responsibility for the attack.  

How it Could Affect Your Business: A cyberattack can cause a city to lose access to portions of its critical infrastructure and that is a danger to the public.

A Skanlog executive said that North Korean hackers are behind the attack. Officials warned that certain beers, wines and spirits could be sold out within a few days with no clear timeline for when the supply will begin flowing again.  

How it Could Affect Your Business: The pace of supply chain attacks is continuing to increase as technology makes businesses become constantly more interconnected.
