Press Release: Baker and Taylor [September 1, 2022]

Baker & Taylor ransomware incident

Update as of 9/01/2022: Thank you again for your patience, kind words, and partnership as we recover from last week's ransomware attack. Our team has been working around the clock to return to normal operations.

Our priority has been remediating our systems and ensuring they are sanitized. As that work is completed, our focus is transitioning to restoration, bringing our systems online, and returning to operations in a phased approach. We expect disruptions to continue this week but are hopeful we can provide timelines for individual systems and applications as the week progresses. Thank you for your understanding.
