May 5, 2016

The Lansing Board of Water and Light was recently the subject of a cyber attack. We talk with Board of Water and Light General Manager Dick Peffley about the utility's recovery efforts.


Ten days ago, the Lansing Board of Water and Light’s corporate network was struck by a malware attack that forced the utility to lock down their systems. The utility says that while dealing with the attack, customer services were not affected. They also say customer and employee data remained secure through the attack.

What has the Lansing Board of Water and Light done to recover? Are operations back to normal?
