James Fisher and Sons hit by cyber breach

This story popped up several times in my news feeds so I suspect there’s more to the breach than is being shared at the moment…:

Marine services provider James Fisher and Sons (JFS) told investors on Tuesday that hackers had managed to breach its computer systems.

JFS has since taken all affected systems offline and is currently working to recover data from back-ups, according to a Reuters report. The company said that it had notified regulators and law enforcement authorities in the UK.

“Work is ongoing to complete the recovery as quickly as possible and to minimise any impact on our businesses,” JFS told Reuters.

The incident caused shares in the company to fall by 5.7%. According to Reuters, JFS declined to comment on the nature of the attack and its possible monetary impact.
