No sensitive information, including customer data and payment information, was viewed or downloaded during the recent ransomware attack on the Steamship Authority.
The SSA was targeted in a ransomware attack earlier this month that disrupted ferry reservations and the SSA’s website. The ferry service was able to maintain its regular schedule of crossings.
In a press release Wednesday, the SSA confirmed it has concluded its investigation into the cyber attack.
“As part of the [SSA’s] comprehensive response to this event, we worked with third-party cybersecurity forensic investigators to conduct a thorough internal investigation. After a rigorous evaluation of our systems, this investigation has now concluded, and the cyber security investigators have confirmed that no sensitive information, including customer data or payment information, was viewed or downloaded during this incident,” the statement said in part.
According to the statement, the SSA has implemented additional safeguards to bolster its protocols. The SSA thanked local, state, and federal agencies for their help throughout the incident, and customers for their patience.
