On 13th May 2021, HSE Ireland faced the worst cyber attack in history. This forced a complete shutdown of the entire ICT infrastructure. Without Zellis, this would have led to delayed pay for over 20,000 employees.
“We couldn’t have done it without Zellis. As it was, we paid all employees on ResourceLink accurately and on time for a couple of months with no systems of our own. It was an amazing achievement, a genuine good news story and HSE management was delighted because there was no impact on frontline workers already hit hard by Covid.”
We spoke to Brid Harte, national Payroll Manager at HSE about the incident and how a strong working relationship with Zellis led to a positive outcome.
