NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The City of New Orleans says the recent cyber attack on its networks had a more than seven million dollar impact, a number Mayor Latoya Cantrell says continues to grow. But, she adds the city will be able to recover three million of that from a cyber security insurance policy purchased before the attack.

“This is something that we have to deal with as a city and it is an expense that we also have to eat as a city. It speaks to the priority of infrastructure that has always been a priority of mine and it also speaks to the real push for maintenance of infrastructure. This will be ongoing,” said Cantrell.
