Cyber attack leaves San Diego systems down
A cybersecurity attack at the Port of San Diego has disrupted IT systems and resulted in limited functionality. In a statement on 26 September, CEO Randa Coniglio said the port first received reports of the disruption on Tuesday 25 September and is now working to minimise disruption. He stated there may be “temporary impacts on service to the public”, particularly “in the areas of park permits, public records requests, and business services” but did not provide details of any impact on scheduling and cargo. Mr Coniglio said: "The Port of San Diego has experienced a serious cybersecurity incident that has disrupted the agency's information technology systems.” http://www.portstrategy.com/news101/world/americas/cyber-attack-leaves-san-diego-systems-down
