Cyber-blackout at Commerce Dept: Tell us your stories


The Economic Development Administration, a small job-development agency in the Commerce Department that gives out grants to low-income communities, is in its eighth week of a cyber-blackout.

Commerce officials say they still haven’t determined what is behind the virus that has affected all of EDA’s computers since mid-January, prompting the government to take the network off-line.

The Post is researching a story on how EDA employees have managed this long with little or no e-mail or Internet connections. Do you work at the EDA or know someone who does? Tell us more using the form below.

All answers are confidential. We will not quote you without first getting your explicit permission.
