LA: Post-Ida cyber attack hits Jefferson Parish courts; closures to last until at least Sept. 20

Ramon Antonio Vargas reports:

Some of Jefferson Parish’s key courthouses will remain closed through the week after a cyber attack shut down the courts’ computer systems in the wake of Hurricane Ida, according to authorities.

The attack occurred after Ida knocked out power and internet to most of Jefferson Parish, leaving the courthouses’ computer network vulnerable following the storm’s Aug. 29 landfall, Clerk of Court Jon Gegenheimer said in a statement Monday.
