International Maritime Organisation hit by Cyber Attack, website currently “unavailable”

A number of IMO’s web-based services are currently unavailable, including IMO’s public website. Service has been restored to the GISIS database, IMODOCS and Virtual Publications.

The interruption of service was caused by a sophisticated cyber-attack against the Organization’s IT systems that overcame robust security measures in place. IMO IT technicians shut down key systems to prevent further damage from the attack. The IMO is working with UN IT and security experts to restore systems as soon as possible, to identify the source of the attack, and further enhance security systems to prevent recurrence.
