ATLANTA — WestRock says its overall operations have functioned smoothly while the company is still working to resolve a ransomware incident that occurred over the weekend.
WestRock said today that its security teams, supported by cyber defense firms, continue to work on remediation and recovery from the incident.
WestRock Chief Executive Officer Steven Voorhees said that with some exceptions, the company’s operations have continued to run and deliver for customers.
In locations where technology issues have been identified, Westrock is using alternative methods to process and ship orders.
“We are working around the clock to complete our investigation and to restore normalized operations as quickly as possible,” said Voorhees.
“WestRock teams are taking extraordinary steps to keep our mills and converting plants operational and to safely deliver to our customers,” he said.
WestRock discovered the ransomware attack on Saturday.
