Security: Fremont County Disrupted by a Cyberattack

On August 17, 2022, government offices in Fremont, Colorado were shut down after having been subjected to a cyberattack. Services are now limited, and some divisions are open by making an appointment but emergency 911 calls and COVID-19 testing are still fully operational.

The latest update from their official statement says that they are “seeing progress in restoring county systems after the cybersecurity event". There was no confirmation as to the origin of the attack but an investigation from the incident response team confirmed that the attack is contained to their servers and other counties were not affected.
