Ransomware Attack – Update
28 June, 2017
On Tuesday 27 June 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.
Our 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.
We will provide further updates as the situation develops.
