Phoenix Mentioned in the Pike Peak Courier
Early 2020, Phoenix was in negotiations with the City of Cripple Creek to become their provider of IT. Cripple Creek was in the middle of cleaning up a ransomware event that compromised their systems. Working with Cripple Creek’s new digital forensic partner Kivu, Phoenix was able to correct the situation by installing new systems and backup existing data to prevent the City from paying the astronomical ransom.
“Acting in the capacity as Finance Director, [Paul] Harris requested that council authorize a professional services agreement with Phoenix Technology Group for managed information technology services. The discussion revealed that last fall, the city underwent a ransomware/malware incident which they are still addressing. Prior to Phoenix coming on board April 1, Harris said the issues must be “cleaned up” by the current contractors. Harris said the new contractor was chosen based on the cost and experience in working with municipalities and their knowledge of law enforcement aspects when dealing with cybersecurity issues.”
