Hackney Council are currently working with the National Cyber Security Centre, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, as well as external experts in order to analyse the extent of the damage resulting from the attack.

As it currently stands, the Council has limited information on the attack although they are committed to updating residents with the progress that the investigation makes.

The Council has warned that their services may be slower than usual, as they are running at limited capacity.

The Council has been contacted for further information, although the investigation remains in its early stages.
