Update on the JBS Cyber Attack 2021.
Andre Nogueira, JBS chief executive officer on Tuesday expressed hopes when he said that he expects a vast majority of the meat processing plants to become operational in the following day.
Recall that there was recently a ransomware attack on the US-owned and world largest meat processor and packer which caused it to temporarily shut down some operations in Australia, Canada and the US, with thousands of its workers affected.
In his words, the JBS CEO says:
We have cybersecurity plans in place to address these types of issues and we are successfully executing those plans, Given the progress, our IT professionals and plant teams have made in the last 24 hours, the vast majority of our beef, pork, poultry and prepared foods plants will be operational tomorrow.”
Even though the JBS Cyber Attack 2021 did occurred, JBS was still able to ship product from nearly all of its facilities to supply its vast number of customers.
On the final note, Andre Nogueira seized the opportunity to thank the White House, the U.S. The FBI, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Australian and Canadian governments for their assistance over the last two days.
