Fed's Evans: hackers did not impair Fed operational abilities

(Reuters) - The Federal Reserve’s operational abilities were not impaired by a recent breach of a Fed website by hackers, a top Fed official said on Thursday.

The website that was hacked had contact information for banks to use during a natural disaster, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said in an interview with CNBC.

“This isn’t an internal operational website, the kind of thing that I have to log into; I’ve got multiple authentication keys, and that’s highly secure,” he said. “It didn’t impair any of our operational abilities.”
