On the evening of Saturday, May 30, 2020, Person County Government learned that it was the subject of a ransomware cyber-incident. The County's Information Technology Department immediately started assessing damages and executing safeguards to contain the incident and prevent further incidents. The IT Department made contact with a task force, which included federal and state agencies. Local authorities were also contacted to discuss the impact as well as to file a report. Person County's Emergency Operation Center has been expanded to include this incident, in the event additional resources are needed. This incident has had a multi-system impact, affecting phones, email, and the Internet for Person County Government and the City of Roxboro. Out of an abundance of caution, all systems are being treated as if they are infected until otherwise confirmed. Due to the nature of the investigation, Person County Government is not at liberty to discuss specific details regarding the incident. While the cyber-incident has created some inconveniences, Person County Government and the City of Roxboro continue to operate at a limited capacity.
