San Diego back up to speed
The Port of San Diego has handled calls from 17 ships following a cyber security attack which disabled its IT systems last month.
Chief executive of the port Randa Coniglio said that since the ransomware attack was first reported, the “port has handled calls from seven cruise ships and 10 cargo ships, processed biweekly payroll, and continued public safety operations as usual.”
Mr Coniglio stated: "The Port of San Diego remains open for business and operations are continuing in the wake of a cybersecurity incident first reported on Tuesday, September 25, 2018.”
He did not comment on the port’s IT systems or its investigation into the incident with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security, but stated that as the cyber-attack mainly impacted internal administrative functions, services to tenants and stakeholders have been generally uninterrupted.
The Port of Barcelona suffered a cyber-attack last month, although it said its operations were unaffected by it. In July, Cosco Shipping Lines’ Long Beach customer service centre COSAG was brought down following a cyber-attack on its US operations.
In June last year, APM Terminals was hit by a cross-border cyber-attack which sent IT systems down across multiple terminals and business units.
