System and service restoration following the May ransomware attack continues.
Various electronic payment functions are back in service and most City locations are now accepting debit and credit cards. For citizen reporting and general questions, or questions about water bill, residents should continue to call 311 during business hours.
Callers are asked to be patient, as 311 has had reported delays in the ability for customers to quickly reach Customer Care representatives. The 311 phone system delays are directly tied to the ransomware attack and currently there is no estimate of how soon the delays can be rectified.
Because of the data leak to the dark web last week, which consisted mainly of police reports and internal department files, residents and City of Tulsa employees have been asked to monitor their financial accounts and credit reports; contact debit/credit card companies to issue a fraud alert; change passwords to personal accounts; and take additional authentication measures in all personal accounts and applications.
