Ventia has taken an undisclosed number of “key systems” offline to contain a cyber security incident. Ventia operates in both Australia and New Zealand and is one of the bigger essential services providers in the two countries.
The listed company, which provides long-term operation, maintenance, and management for critical public and private assets and infrastructure, disclosed the incident on Saturday.
“As part of our management of this incident, we have taken decisive action to contain it, including taking some key systems offline,” the company said in a statement.
Ventia engaged CyberCX to support our forensic investigation, advise and assist with remediation activities, and to support our systems assurance process.
Ventia continues to work closely with the relevant regulators and law enforcement in relation to the ongoing investigation of the incident.
