Terming the 2017 cyber-attack as an “extremely difficult” episode, global shipping giant Maersk Line has said it has invested in network to ensure that its operations here do not get impacted by any such global breach in the future. “We have revised our system architecture to reduce some amount of the risks,” it’s India managing director Steve Felder told PTI here. “If there is a future attack, we would be able to contain it locally,” he added. He said the June 2017 ransom-ware attack, which started due to a breach in Ukraine and impacted the systems of parent APM Group’s all companies, was “extremely difficult”.
