The Office of the Colorado State Public Defender was recently the victim of cyberattack, which ultimately caused users to be completely locked out of the system. Denver partner, Austin Chambers, who focuses on technology, data privacy and security compliance, helped offer context to the cyberattack - and what generally happens when one occurs with such a public entity.

Austin was featured on both Denver’s FOX31-KDVR and CBS4 Colorado with his insight and expertise with breaches.

When discussing next steps, he told Fox, “In the interim, they will keep services offline to avoid further security incidents/data loss. The hope at this point will be that there is only a delay in their work and that data (especially client data) was neither lost, nor accessed/acquired by a bad actor. That will be highly confidential at this stage.”
