Baltimore IT director who was at helm during ransomware attack and city's recovery is on leave

Frank Johnson, the Baltimore IT director who City Council members have criticized for his leadership during this summer’s recovery from a crippling ransomware attack, is on leave, the mayor’s office said Tuesday.

His deputy, Todd Carter, is serving as acting director.

Lester Davis, a spokesman for Democratic Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, confirmed that Johnson was on leave. Davis declined to comment on the reasons for that or when Johnson might return, saying it was a confidential personnel matter.

Davis said the city’s recovery from the ransomware is all but complete and the mayor is confident Carter will continue the work of securing the city’s computer networks in Johnson’s absence.
