Just a day before a WEF meeting on cybersecirity
I woke this morning to the following news that came to me from the other side of the world.
Here is Australian Channel 7
Major sea ports around Australia have been shut down by operator DP World following what has been called a “cybersecurity incident.”
The container terminal operator made the decision late on Friday night, with access to ports heavily restricted on Saturday at Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Fremantle.
“Our teams are working diligently to contain the situation and determine the impact on our systems and data,” DP World Australia said in a statement to the Australian Financial Review.
“To safeguard our employees, customers and our networks, we have restricted landside access to our Australian port operations while we continue our investigation.
“This is part of a comprehensive response which includes engaging with cybersecurity experts, actively investigating the incident and notifying the relevant authorities.”
The hack follows another cybersecurity incident at Melbourne cryptocurrency exchange Coinspot on Thursday, in which more than $2m was taken from accounts.
sea ports across the country were locked down after a ports operator confirmed a “cybersecurity incident” had struck.
Another data breach in September caused the information of nearly 200,000 Pizza Hut customers to be leaked.
Bookstore chain Dymocks also disclosed a data breach, in which customer data “may have been compromised,” also took place in September.
The Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) recently voted on industrial action, extending their 24-hour rolling strike notice until November 20.
There’s no suggestion the cybersecurity incident and the union actions are linked.
DP World is a Dubai-based logistics company which operates cargo and port terminal services both in Australia and internationally
