HAMDEN — The city’s IT services were “compromised” early Thursday, prompting a recovery effort, according to Mayor Lauren Garrett’s administration.

Sean Grace, Garrett’s chief of staff, said in a statement that the city’s emergency services were unaffected, but less essential functions were affected.

“Our team quickly shut down the system to protect against further compromise. We have contracted a recovery consultant and are working with law enforcement investigators to get our system up and running safely,” said said Grace, “Our emergency services are uninterrupted. Non-emergency services will be available as soon as possible.”

Officials will offer updates as the recovery process continues, Grace said.
