WPP provides update on ransomware attack


WPP has said that many of its businesses have experienced “no or minimal disruption” as it now works to return to normal operations.

The agency group was one of a number of high profile companies targeted in a wide ranging ransomware attack on Tuesday. Meanwhile, a WPP India spokesperson said that business in the country had not been impacted.

In a statement on Twitter, the group said, “On Tuesday 27 June a number of WPP companies-though not all-were affected by ransomware attacks that hit organizations around the world. We are working with our IT partners and law enforcement agencies to take all appropriate precautionary measures, restore services where they have been disrupted, and keep the impact on clients, partners and our people to a minimum. Having taken steps to contain the attack, the priority now is to return to normal operations as soon as possible while protecting our systems.

Our operations have not been uniformly affected, and issues are being addressed on a company-to-company basis. Many of our companies are experiencing no or minimal disruptions. We will provide further updates as the situation develops.”
