Early this week, critical infrastructure services provider, Ventia, took some of its key systems offline to contain a cyber incident. The company provides management, maintenance and operations services for critical infrastructure to more than 400 sites across defence, electricity, water and gas industries in Australia and New Zealand. The company did not provide details and only said that it has engaged external cyber security experts and is actively working with regulators and law enforcement. They recently announced that they are confident that the cyber incident has been contained, that key internal systems have been safely re-enabled, and additional key external-facing networks are being progressively restored.
