“The incident occurred on CS Energy’s corporate network and has not impacted electricity generation at our Callide and Kogan Creek power stations. Our power stations are continuing to generate and dispatch electricity into the National Electricity Market,” CS Energy said in a statement..

CEO Andrew Bills said the company had “moved quickly to contain this incident by segregating the corporate network from other internal networks and enacting business continuity processes.”

“We immediately notified relevant state and federal agencies, and are working closely with them and other cyber security experts,” Bills said.
