Scottish Engineering Giant Weir Group Suffers Ransom Attack | Cyber Protection Operation Center News

Scottish engineering company Weir Group, who employs over 11,000 people in 50 countries, has disclosed that they are still fighting with the consequences of a ransomware attack that happened in September.
The attack was not fully successful, but still led to significant disruption within the company. Some of the company’s IT infrastructure was shut down as soon as the attack was detected, including the ERP system.
The company saw a revenue deferral of £50 million in September, due to the disruption in shipments and manufacturing, and the investigation into the attack is still ongoing at this time.

No matter which ransom group is behind the attack, the Active Protection in Acronis Cyber Protect detects and blocks even unknown ransomware, before it can disrupt your business.
