A supplier from the municipalities of Vaud has been the target of cyberattacks

Hackers have penetrated the computer system of GRF Société fiduciaire, a Morges-based company that collaborates with public authorities, reveals 24 Heures. The attack threatened the data of a dozen municipalities and public authorities. The entities in question are mainly located in the Morges district.

Why is this interesting? Other municipalities in Vaud have been the target of cyber attacks this year. This is the case of Rolle and Montreux. If, in this case, municipalities were not the direct target of the attack, this event reminds us that external service providers that manage data for public authorities are not immune.
