Cyber hackers target Bureau Veritas

Classification society Bureau Veritas (BV) has announced that on Saturday November 20th, 2021, a cyber-attack was detected in the group's system.

The group has reported online that in response to the attack, all of its cybersecurity procedures were immediately activated. A preventive decision was made to temporarily take its servers and data offline to protect its clients and the company while further investigations and corrective measures are in progress.

BV states that this decision generates a partial unavailability or slowdown of its services and client interfaces. BV's teams, supported by third-party IT experts, are currently deploying all efforts to ensure business continuity and minimise disruption to its clients, employees and partners. BV's incident response procedure has been triggered. BV has also actioned the relevant authorities, who will provide the company with additional support to resume normal operations in the short term.
