Over the night of 8/9 April, Danish pump and BWTS supplier Desmi's IT systems and operations were put out of action as a result of cyber crime.

Since the attack, Desmi says it has been supported by external experts and is fully focusing on restoring systems to normal operations and assessing the full scope of impact.

“All systems have been shut down and systems are being restored. First part of our systems will be up and running within a couple of days and the rest within a couple of weeks” said Group CEO Henrik Sørensen. “Everything is progressing according to plan. We are recovering systems and together with external experts we are working intensively to minimise customer impact and impact on operations. Everyone is doing a fantastic job to get the systems operational again”.

At present, the scale of eventual data loss is being investigated and it is yet too early to communicate the impact of the attack, which has been reported to the authorities and Danish Police.

Operational updates will be provided to all customers and business partners as information becomes available.
