Cleveland City Hall to reopen after ‘cyber incident’

CLEVELAND — Cleveland officials said City Hall and Erieview will reopen at 11 a.m. Wednesday after a “cyber incident” that kept the buildings closed on both Monday and Tuesday.

Details about the cyber incident, including its nature and scope, were not discussed by city officials so as not to disrupt the investigation.

“We are committed to continuing to provide up-to-date information as it becomes available. We will not be releasing any details that could jeopardize the ongoing investigation into this incident,” city officials said in a statement.

The city had to shut down affected systems and focus on safely securing and restoring operations. However, city and emergency services, including the Department of Public Safety (911, Police, Fire and EMS), the Department of Port Control (Cleveland Hopkins and Burke Lakefront Airports), the Department of Public Utilities (Water, Water Pollution Control and Cleveland Public Power) have not been violated.
