Swedish-Swiss robotics and automation major ABB Ltd. recently faced a cybersecurity incident that disrupted operations. The Zurich-headquartered company – which was until 2020, Switzerland’s largest industrial employer, says that the security incident directly affected certain locations and systems and that work is in progress to contain the same.
Eike Christian Meuter, group spokesperson at ABB, tells ETCISO that to address the situation, the company “has taken, and continues to take, measures to contain the incident.”
These measures, he says, resulted in some disruptions to its operations which the company is addressing. “The vast majority of its systems and factories are now up and running and ABB continues to serve its customers in a secure manner,” says Meuter.
