AP Møller-Maersk

In June 2017, global shipping giant AP Møller-Maersk fell victim to the NotPetya malware, resulting in one of the most significant cyber-attacks in history. The malware quickly spread through the company's networks, leading to operations shutting down across 76 ports and nearly 800 sea vessels. With Maersk's booking systems knocked offline, their revenue streams were cut, and the global supply chain saw substantial disruptions. As Maersk underpins a sizeable portion of the global economy, the implications of this attack were far-reaching. It took roughly two weeks for the company to bring its services back online, and the incident highlighted the critical need for robust cybersecurity measures within global shipping and beyond.
