DATIA Working Fast to Relaunch Site

Staffers of the Drug & Alcohol Industry Testing Association discovered Tuesday evening that a hacker had caused www.datia.org to go down.

Thanks to a hacker, the website of the Drug & Alcohol Industry Testing Association, www.datia.org, is down April 27. Staffers of the association discovered it the previous evening after sending out an email about a May 11 webinar on stopping drug test cheaters.

DATIA Membership Director Erin Carbary said the association does not know who the hacker is. DATIA's IT staff had been working for several hours to solve the problem and should have the site restored within about an hour, she said at 10:15 a.m. CDT.

"I sent out a mass e-mail this morning to let as many people as possible know about it," Carbary said. "It definitely is a problem. In this day and age, most people come to the site" to find out about the association's activities, rather than calling, she added.

Asked whether anyone had hacked into the site previously, she replied, "I think one other time. We were really surprised, just going back and forth with our IT guys to find out how it could have happened." Carbary said DATIA will launch a new website within a few days that should prevent this from recurring; this attack was coincidental because the new site was in the works before it occurred, she said.

The webinar is titled "Getting the Most Out of Drug Testing: Stop Drug Test Cheaters," presented by Bill Current. Current delivered a presentation with the same title during an OH&S webinar on Dec. 9, 2010.
