5:06 pm
they're not calling it a security breach. it wasn't a hardware or software failure. it was caused by someone inside the building that houses metro's 9-1-1 call center. from individual computers to server rooms full of equipment, there are about 130 access points to the 9-1-1 system. metro says they won't be able to isolate which one caused the crash. employees and outside vendors, like maintenance and electricians, can access the system. though metro believes whoever caused the crash didn't do it on purpose, they admit it's a tough lesson learned to beef up security and close access points. one of the things they're now doing is placing back room hardware in locked cabinets... which they note will make maintenance and making changes more difficult. it might seem crazy that our 9-1-1 system had this level of exposure, but metro says they're like most other government agencies in the way
