Update on the Kronos Cloud situation

Parent Message

As of today, it's still down. Now organizations are learning an expensive lesson in trusting the cloud and how you still need backup plans and contingencies for the inevitable issues that will come up, whether from bad actors or just network disruptions. The cloud is never going to have a 100% online status, that's impossible. Ignore anyone who says otherwise.

As the following link discusses: Human resource and payroll vendor Kronos has been recovering from a widespread ransomware attack for more than a month, which has created major payroll issues at a number of health systems. Employees and clients are venting frustrations to local media and community boards, begging for answers: Shouldn’t there have been contingencies in place to ensure employees are paid?

Who’s to blame for the Kronos payroll disruptions, post cyberattack?
