More than £60,000 will be spent replacing and upgrading Aberdeen council computer systems after a high-profile cyber attack earlier this year.
In late January, hacking group Team System DZ breached security on the Aberdeen City Council site in a two-hour incident.
The group posted details of the attack on its own Facebook page – and initially gave no reasons for the hack.
They later claimed it was in response to US president Donald Trump’s immigration order.
It has since been revealed the local authority had to spend £10,000 in extra manpower to fix the damage and new systems will cost more than £62,000.
A report to councillors said a “vulnerability assessment of the website” carried out by an external company cost £5,550, while paying council staff for 170 hours to deal with the breach cost £4,540.
Councillors on the audit committee will meet next week to discuss the council’s “action plan” following the hack.
The authority has already completed a number of points on its plan including new passwords and reviewing out of hours IT provision.
