Justice and Correctional Services cyberattack

Justice Department slowly gets back on track after suffering cyberattacks - The Ministry of Justice & Correctional Services has indicated that its systems have now been activated after four weeks of inactivity due to a cyberattack. One of the systems that has now been restored is the court recording portal which is used by transcribers to download court proceedings “Another critical area that has been given high priority is the electronic recording of court proceedings to ensure that courts are able to operate as normal. Most of the recordings are intact and able to sync back to the central repository. Where courts are still experiencing challenges, a special capacity has been deployed to attend to queries on a case-by-case basis.

The Department also noted that it would continue to work on bringing back the functionality of other systems in the next few days. These will include systems that manage trusts, deceased estates and insolvencies. In relation to personal information, the Department indicated that it had strengthened its security systems to protect sensitive personal information under its custodianship.
