The Suffolk County government’s main website returned to service on Friday, along other online services.
The main site and numerous county online services had been offline for nearly six months, after hackers demanded a $2.5 million ransomware the county refused to pay. Not all services have been restored, but more will come online next week.
Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone says the county is conducting a search for a chief information security office, to help prevent future attacks.
