World’s largest cyber attack
Once again there has been a huge cyber attack in the world counting India. Malware such as Ransomware has taken the world to storms. Owing to this cyber attack, the operation of 20 huge firms companies across the globe, comprising the largest Mumbai-based container port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), were stopped.
The global cyber attack has affected the operational systems present at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) and brought the trading functions to a complete halt. This port, present at the coastal region of Mumbai, is considered to be India’s commercial hub. And the ransomware attack has totally disrupted the functioning at this port. The Indian trade market is currently in a “do or die” situation after the ransomware attack due to the slowdown in the working procedure.
The need for the software in the container port is of utmost importance. Hence the security officials are trying their best to solve the problem as soon as possible. The terminal operations are basically handled by AP Moller-Maersk, a Danish shipping giant. The trading giant has been in havoc after the ransomware attack since the business has been affected to a greater extent.
The JNPT port is considered to be one of the most important container ports in India that has included the logistics data tagging of the containers. The logistic data bank tagging of containers will help the importers and exporters have a track record of their goods. The logistics data bank service at the port helps carry out the trading process smoothly. The global cyber attack has got the trading process to be carried out manually and hence there is a huge drop in the import and export business.
Having said this, one thing is for sure that the growing cases of cyber attacks have surely put most of the tech majors in a dilemma. But this does end here. The industry analysts have forecasted some more major attacks and have alerted the tech companies to upgrade their security so they suffer from the minimum loss. For now, let us wait and watch how the flow of situations goes on.
