Ransomware attack against Ultimate Kronos Group might result in weeks of downtime for HR solutions

On Monday 13th of December 2021, Ultimate Kronos Group (UKG), one of the most popular and widely used payroll and workforce tracking systems for public finance entities disclosed that they suffered a ransomware attack on Saturday 11th of December 2021, that resulted in the Kronos Private Cloud being taken down and it may take several weeks before system will be available to clients again. UKG solutions that don’t use the Kronos Private Cloud are unaffected.

“We took immediate action to investigate and mitigate the issue, and have determined that this is a ransomware incident affecting the Kronos Private Cloud—the portion of our business where UKG Workforce Central, UKG TeleStaff, Healthcare Extensions, and Banking Scheduling Solutions are deployed.”- Ultimate Kronos Group

Ultimate Kronos Group’s Executive VP Bob Hughes have claimed that they are investigating the incident with leading cyber security experts to assess and resolve the situation and have notified the authorities.
