Maersk Line invests heavily to secure its ops from cyber-attacks

Terming the 2017 cyber-attack as an “extremely difficult” episode, Maersk Line India managing director Steve Felder has said the company has invested to ensure that its operations in India are containable and that any local breach would not have a global impact.

He said that “We have revised our system architecture to reduce some amount of the risks. If there is a future attack, we would be able to contain it locally”. The June 2017 ransomware attack, which started due to a breach in Ukraine and impacted the systems of the parent group AP Moller-Maersk, was “extremely difficult”, he said.
