Cyberattack crashes San Diego systems
A cybersecurity attack at the Port of San Diego has disrupted IT systems and resulted in limited functionality.
In a statement on 26 September, CEO Randa Coniglio said the port first received reports of the disruption on Tuesday 25 September and is now working to minimise disruption. He stated there may be “temporary impacts on service to the public”, particularly “in the areas of park permits, public records requests, and business services” but did not provide details of any impact on scheduling and cargo.
Mr Coniglio said: "The Port of San Diego has experienced a serious cybersecurity incident that has disrupted the agency's information technology systems.”
He added: “The Port has mobilized a team of industry experts and local, regional, state and federal partners to minimize impacts and restore system functionality, with priority placed on public safety-related systems.”
The port did not respond to Port Strategy’s request for comment on whether cargo operations were affected and if the case, when they are expected to be back to normal, however, in its statement it said port employees are currently at work but have limited functionality and that no further information was currently available on the incident.
The port’s operations include the six-acre Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal, and the 135-acre National City Marine Terminal.
