The Port of San Diego has confirmed that it has been the victim of a cyber-attack, disrupting the agency’s information technology systems.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Port first received reports of the disruption on September 25th, at which point it mobilised industry experts and local, regional, state and federal partners to minimise the impact of the incident and restore system functionality as soon as possible.

In an update statement issued on September 27th, the Port said that its initial investigations into the attack had determined that ransomware had penetrated its systems.

“The team is currently determining the extent and timing of the incident and the amount of damage to information technology resources, and developing a plan for recovery,” said Port of San Diego CEO Randa Coniglio.

“The Harbor Police Department continues to use alternative systems and procedures in place to minimise impacts to public safety.”

“Port employees continue to have limited functionality which may have temporary impacts on service to the public, especially in the areas of park permits, public records requests, and business services. No further information is available at this time; updates will be provided as information is available.”{/mprestriction}
