Dialog is being established with authorities in Brazil about the incident. Aker Solutions global IT organization is working to resolve the situation together with external expertise.
The attack is currently directed at CSE, and the attackers claim that they have entered the IT systems, encrypted digital files and locked access to data.
Aker Solutions have carried out several immediate mitigating actions, including temporarily shutting down most of the IT-systems used in the CSE business entity. So far there are no indications that other parts of Aker Solutions’ IT systems than the ones of subsidiary CSE have been infected.
CSE is a fully-owned Aker Solutions subsidiary with approximately 450 employees in Brazil. CSE’s main business is providing maintenance and modifications services to oil and gas installations offshore Brazil.
Aker Solutions is doing its outmost to limit impact on employees, customers and other partners.
