Federal anti–money laundering agency FinTRAC is still grappling with the fallout from a cyberattack that it first reported three weeks ago.

In a statement on Friday, the agency provided an update on its ongoing recovery from a cyberincident that was first detected back on March 2.

FinTRAC reported it took its corporate systems offline when the breach was discovered, to “protect the information that it maintains” and to safeguard its systems.

Today, it announced that “following extensive forensic work,” which was carried out alongside the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, and various other federal departments and agencies, “there is no evidence that any information has been removed from FinTRAC’s systems or that any information was lost.”

However, the agency’s systems remain offline, it said.

FinTRAC noted that it is “working closely with its federal partners to return to full operational capacity as soon as it is safe and prudent to do so.”
