MBA Group – Suffers Cyber Attack
MBA is a top 100 printing group with sales of £47.4m in its most recent financial year according to printweek.com. Its clients are primarily in the financial, utilities, insurance and marketing sectors. The firm holds a raft of related security accreditations including ISO 22301, ISO 27001 and CPAS 55, and is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
The firm has sites located in both London and Warrington were subject to the attack. It is believed that cyber criminals may be specifically targeting firms that provide support services to financial institutions.
In a statement, sales director Kevin Stewart said the firm hoped to resolve the situation by the end of this week. Phone lines to both sites are currently out of action.
Stewart said: “We were recently impacted by a cyber attack, which caused some operational disruption to our systems and a small proportion of our client work.
“The incident itself was quickly contained and we are working with external IT experts. Our focus remains restoring all client services by end of play this week,” he explained. “We’re grateful for the support of our staff, suppliers and clients who have worked collaboratively throughout the response to the incident.”
