KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas is working through a full review on the impact of services from a recent cybersecurity attack on its systems over the weekend.

The UG said work to restore services is underway, and as of Tuesday afternoon, services impacted include the appraiser’s office, district attorney’s office, district court, motor vehicle services, procurement and the sheriff’s office.

“There were some departments that were impacted — not to the extend that it stops the kind of workload and services that our residents have come to expect, but those issues are being addressed,” Mayor Tyrone Garner said.

If you have submitted an appeal to a 2022 appraisal, the UG said your appointment with an appraiser may be rescheduled by calling 913-573-8400.

Some services at the district attorney’s office may be delayed and for updates you can call Jonathan Carter at 913-573-2849.

The District Court is currently not accepting e-filings. The UG aid if you need to file something, you will need to come to the courthouse at 710 N. 7th Street in Kansas City, Kansas or send paperwork via fax.

The state of Kansas has suspended all motor vehicle services with the UG. The UG said it will provide an update as soon as these services resume.

This weekend the UG said it was subject to a cybersecurity attack to its data centers.

Jeff Shipley with Ravenii Cybersecurity in Kansas City said cyber attacks are up since the Ukraine/Russia war started with 48% of those attacks pointed toward government entities since their IT departments are understaffed.

“They can ransomware, which is basically shutting your systems down so they’re not usable. So, you can imagine an entire city not being able to use any of their computer infrastructure, phone network, 911,” he said.

The UG said those in the community can check its website or call 311 for updates on services impacted.

The UG said it is actively working with the US Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Mid-America Regional Council cybersecurity task force to determine what data, if any, may have been compromised.
