The Port of San Diego has been hit by a cyber attack, affecting more than 500 workers. The attack took place on Tuesday and has spread to many departments of the US west coast port.
In a statement published Wednesday, the port’s CEO Randa Coniglio said the hack impacted issuing of park permits, public records requests and the Harbor Police.
“The Port of San Diego has experienced a serious cybersecurity incident that has disrupted the agency’s information technology systems,” Coniglio stated.
The port mobilised a team of industry experts and local, regional, state and federal partners to fix the issue.
