After the data recovery of the computer systems, now voicemail for territorial government offices is working again smoothly. The most recent backups of the computer systems are from October 31.

The government of Nunavut has said in a statement on November 12 that information division is working continuously with departmental IT teams to restore the recovered data and bring all the systems back online. The government has also said that it will give priority to data restoration for the department of Health, Family Services, Education, Justice, and Finance. The computer systems of the government were attacked with powerful ransomware that blocked access to the computer systems by encrypting their data.

Cyber attackers were asking to pay a ransom to unlock the data. In this case, the ransomware encrypted the individual files across the government’s servers and workstation. And to recover that, government used various alternatives like R-Undelete to restore the lost data on the computer system after a ransomware attack was healed.

The government collected and reformatted all the computers and returned them within 24 hours. A reconfiguring process was carried out on all the desktop computers. They are now labeled and categorized. How many computer systems were affected by ransomware attacks is not confirmed yet. Community and Government Services Department are working on a solution to find optimal recovery time.
