TORRANCE, Calif., April 23, 2020- On April 20, 2020, the City of Torrance learned of data published to the internet that may have come from our systems in the course of a ransomware attack we experienced on March 1, 2020. We are working with law enforcement and a professional third-party forensic firm to analyze the contents of the data and investigate its source.
Some of the data may include personal information of employees and others. We sincerely apologize and regret any concern this incident may cause our employees and others who interact with the City. We are working hard to determine if this information originated from our systems and will notify affected individuals as soon as is reasonably possible. The investigation is ongoing, and we cannot provide any additional information at this time.
