SAN DIEGO, Calif.: On October 4, 2018, the Port of San Diego issued an update from Chief Executive Officer Randa Coniglio regarding a cybersecurity incident that was first reported on Tuesday, September 25.
"The Port of San Diego remains open for business and operations are continuing in the wake of a cybersecurity incident first reported on Tuesday, September 25, 2018. Since the incident was first reported, our Port has handled calls from seven cruise ships and 10 cargo ships, processed biweekly payroll, and continued public safety operations as usual. Our regularly scheduled October 9, 2018 Board of Port Commissioners meeting will proceed as planned. The agenda will be published and distributed in advance, as always. As this incident mainly impacted internal administrative functions, our services to our tenants and stakeholders have been generally uninterrupted, with the following minor exceptions: park permits cannot be accepted online, and public records requests in some cases are taking longer than usual to process. Public records continue to be provided in accordance with legal requirements. I appreciate the public's patience as we continue our recovery from this incident," said Port of San Diego CEO Randa Coniglio.
