One of the world’s biggest agency networks has fallen prey to a cyber-attack on a global scale. WWP companies witnessed disruption in their operations including India following the cyber-attack. A few WPP holding companies in India informed BestMediaInfo.com that their operations have also been impacted.
Meanwhile, the WPP website (wpp.com) is up and running while the network is working to restore the normal operations across its offices.
In the latest statement, the holding company said that its operations have not been uniformly affected, and issues are being addressed on a company-by-company basis. “Many of our businesses are experiencing no or minimal disruption,” it said.
On Tuesday, June 27, a number of WPP companies – though not all – were affected by the ransomware attack that hit organisations 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,” the statement said. “We will provide further updates as the situation develops.”
