A ransomware attack VUMC Kronos
A ransomware attack on Kronos, the company behind the popular payroll and human resources management software, has left customers without access to their data for weeks at a time. The attack has caused many customers to resort to paper checks and contingency arrangements to pay staff. It has also left millions of employees in administrative limbo, as they have no way of accessing their payroll systems. The attack targeted Kronos Private Cloud solutions, which host corporate data for Kronos services.
The ransomware attack has affected several Kronos products, including the Kronos Private Cloud and Kronos Healthcare Extensions. It also disabled the ability for third parties to access data. The attack occurred at the height of Maryland’s COVID-19 hospitalization spike. The attack has tainted the credibility of companies using cloud-based solutions.
Whether Kronos is liable for damages or legal action is unclear. However, the breach may fall within the terms of its license agreements with companies.
A manual time entry process
The process of manually entering time on a VMC Kronos is not the ideal way to record time. It can slow down your digital processes and may also cost you money in the long run. Fortunately, there are some ways to automate the time entry process. Let’s explore a few of these options.
First, you can delegate this task to a supervisor. Alternatively, you can let another person approve time off requests. You can also give employees the ability to request time off using the Kronos Application. Kronos also features a Payroll Close Checklist which outlines how to approve or reject time.
A reference portal
VUMC Kronos is an electronic time and attendance (TA) system used for tracking employee time and leave usage. It’s a web-based application that doesn’t require installation on workstations. Currently, Kronos requires Java version 8 update 51 for access. However, if Java is a problem, an alternative web-based version is available.
