CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System website is back online a little over a month after it was hacked. The website was taken down on June 10 immediately after the school system was notified by law enforcement authorities of the hacking incident.
The newly restored website features a video message from Director of Schools Mike Harris talking about the website being hacked. “We have spent the past few weeks working with the Cybercrime Task Force. We have been taking a variety of aggressive measures to protect our systems and ensure this does not happen again,” Harris said.
It was first believed that the personal information of thousands of employees and students was released on the internet but Harris said computer experts have determined the breach was far less extensive than previously thought.
Saying that any violation of our students and employees privacy is intolerable, Harris recommended that any potentially affected individuals follow the guidelines of the Federal Trade Commission and notify any of the three credit bureaus.
“We recognize this is a difficult situation and we appreciate the patience and understanding that our community has expressed and we will continue to provide updates as they are available,” said Harris.
Elise Shelton, Chief Communications Officer for the school system talked about the return of the website. “We are bringing different aspects of the site up in stages so school sites will actually be coming on in different phases over the next few days,” Shelton said.
The website for the Clarksville-Montgomery County School system can be found at www.cmcss.net.
