Meat processing company JBS has fully restored the operation of all its enterprises after the cyber-attack. This is stated in a statement published on the company’s website.
The document emphasizes that the company “fully resumed the work of all its enterprises around the world after eliminating the consequences of the cyber-attack on May 30.” The head of JBS, Andre Nogueira, noted that “quickly restore the activity” of the plants was possible due to the “purposeful work” of experts in the field of Internet technologies and cybersecurity.
“The criminals did not gain access to our key systems, which largely smoothed out the negative consequences,” he said. “Fortunately, today, all of our businesses around the world are operating normally, and we are committed to fulfilling our responsibilities to produce safe, high-quality products.” The company noted that the attackers did not gain access to the personal data of customers, suppliers, or employees of JBS. The statement notes that immediately after the cyberattack, the company “notified the federal authorities about the incident and used cyber defense tools.” “We would like to thank the White House, the US Department of Agriculture, and the FBI for their support in quickly resolving this problem,” the company’s chief executive said.
