Maersk Contains Cyber Attack, Works on Recovery Plan

Danish transport and logistics major A.P. Moller – Maersk has informed that it managed to contain a cyber attack which shut down IT systems across multiple sites and select business units.

The conglomerate, which was hit as part of a global cyber attack named Petya on June 27, 2017, said that it is working on a technical recovery plan with key IT partners and global cyber security agencies.

“We have shut down a number of systems to help contain the issue. At this point our entities Maersk Oil, Maersk Drilling, Maersk Supply Services, Maersk Tankers, Maersk Training, Svitzer and MCI are not operationally affected,” Maersk said, adding that precautionary measures have been taken to ensure continued operations.

Furthermore, the company said that Maersk Line vessels are maneuverable, able to communicate and crews are safe, while APM Terminals is impacted in a number of ports.

“We continue to assess and manage the situation to minimize the impact on our operations, customers and partners from the current situation. Business continuity plans are being implemented and prioritized,” according to the shipping giant.

The aggregate impact on Maersk Group’s business is being assessed.
