Cyberattack Forces World’s Largest Meat Supplier to Shut Down Operations | Voice of America

JBS Foods, the world’s largest meat supplier, has been forced to shut down operations in Australia and North America Monday, as the company has been a target of a cyberattack over the weekend, according to officials at its headquarters in Brazil. Authorities said they are working to resolve the impact. 

A U.S. subsidiary, JBS USA, issued a statement following the attack saying they are taking “immediate action, suspending all affected systems, notifying authorities, and activating the company’s global network of IT [Information Technology] professionals and third-party experts,” to address the issue, Reuters reported. 

Some transactions with customer and suppliers might be delayed due to the cyberattack, the company statement added.  

There is no evidence, so far, that the personal data of customers and suppliers or employees had been compromised, the statement said. The company’s backup IT system was not hit by what the company said was an “organized cybersecurity attack.” 

The largest global meatpacker has operations in Canada, Britain, Europe, New Zealand and Mexico.
