Government online services, including the digitalFiji platform and COVID-19 vaccine registry system, have been restored.
This, according to Attorney-General and Communications Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
In a statement released on Tuesday, he said civil servants’ pay was not affected and “arrangements have been made to ensure timely government payments to vendors”.
The systems were shut-down after a suspected cyber-attack on Monday resulted in disruptions to some of Government’s online services and networks.
“The public can access online birth registration, printing of birth certificates, reprinting of birth certificates, digital registration of companies, e-profile registration, the myFeedback platform and the vaccine registry system,” the A-G said.
Following a whole-of-government cybersecurity briefing, government ministries and entities were preparing to restore the remainder of government e-services in line with Fiji’s internationally-recognised security protocols.
“These protocols can be time-intensive but they are necessary to ensure network integrity.”
