AP Moller-Maersk has been hit by a cyber-attack that has shut down the company’sIT systems in multiple offices around the globe.

 

The attack has affected systems at a number of Maersk offices globally, a spokesperson for the company told TradeWinds.

 

Maersk says it does not have any information about the nature of the incident and it remains unclear when its IT systems will come back up.

 

The spokeswoman added that Maersk is continuously assessing the situation and will provide further updates.

 

According to its website, Maersk operates in 130 countries and employs roughly 88,000 employees.

 

Cyber security has become an increasingly important issue within the maritime industry and many experts have cautioned shipping companies to pay the attention to the matter.

 

Rory Macfarlane, a Hong Kong-based partner of Ince &Co, says the global cost ofcyber-crime annually is forecast to rise by 2021 to £2.45 trillion.

 

“Losses and liabilities of this magnitude could put the future of businesses into doubt,” he said.

 

“Successful cyber-attacks can be crippling, financially, operationally and reputationally.

 

“Many companies remain unaware of the risks and are unprepared to mitigate them, butare now operating within an increasingly regulated cyber-landscape.

 

“Regulators are encouraging self-initiative, rather than laying out punitive measures fornon-compliance, and companies should develop their own contingency plans to conform with these guidelines.”

 

The incident at Maersk comes as more organisations in Europe have fallen victims to what appears to be a series of cyber-attacks today.

 

Russia’s Rosneft said its servers have been affected while Uk rainian banks and other private firms have been hit by an unknown virus.
