An authority responsible for the care of thousands of foster children in southern Manitoba left itself open to hackers and ignored warnings that its internal information technology network was at risk, according to the head of one foster care provider.
“I don’t want to be the guy, but I told you so,” said Richard De La Ronde, executive director of Sandy Bay Child and Family Services. “It was a concern for us.”
The Southern First Nations Network of Care — tasked with overseeing the care of more than 5,000 foster children in southern Manitoba through 10 agencies — was the victim of a ransomware attack on Thursday morning.
