A $2.2 million security system for a company in Oklahoma City that’s been the target of two recent terror attacks has been a lightning rod for controversy.
Verizon said Thursday that it will begin installing the system, which will require up to 16 different servers and security cameras, on Thursday.
It’s one of the first major upgrades Verizon has made to its security network, which has been plagued by cyberattacks in recent years.
In March, the company was the target by hackers targeting Verizon’s wireless network, forcing it to close several branches and shuttered shops.
The company blamed the attacks on China and North Korea.
In September, Verizon was also attacked by a group that claimed responsibility for an attack on its network in Washington, D.C., that left two people dead.
Verizon said the attack was connected to Russia.
