BRIDGEPORT — The Bridgeport Police Department’s time management system has been hacked, the city said Tuesday.
Bridgeport was made aware Monday that the system, Kronos, had a nationwide cyber-hack, according to Rowena White, the city’s director of communications.
The police department uses the system for time management such as logging daily hours and overtime.
As a result, Kronos has locked its systems to secure and identify the threat, according to White.
“Our investigation is ongoing,” Kronos said. “And we are working diligently to determine whether customer data has been compromised.”
White said data within the system includes police officers’ names, addresses, phone numbers, employee information of hire date, amount of personal time off and overtime. The system does not contain birth dates, social security numbers or any other personal, bank or financial information, White added.
The city is not aware of any data being compromised, White said.
