South African MacSteel Hit by Cyberattack
Fin24 reported that South African Steel supplier Macsteel was hit by a cyberattack around the same time when Transnet port services were brought down last month by an attack to the firm's IT systems. Macsteel did not give many details about the breach which it said occurred in late July, but confirmed its systems returned back to normal within two business days of the breach and no critical information was affected. "There was no personal or confidential information compromised as a result of the attack."
The company, which supplies a variety of industrial companies, said its controls performed well to protect the integrity of information and systems and that it was investigating the source of the attack.
