Saudi Aramco CEO: No Critical Systems Affected
Although 30,000 of its computers were affected by the cyberattack that targeted the company on August 15, the CEO of Saudi Aramco Khalid A. Al-Falih claimed that none of their critical services or business transactions had been impacted.
Present at a company workshop on cybersecurity, Al-Falih has told the audience that the organization has been aware of the fact that IT poses great risks, which is why they've continually fortified their networks with “rigorous protection technologies.”
“We had in place the processes and systems to manage, as well as sufficient incident response and business continuity plans to deal with the ramifications,” he explained. “Built-in system architecture and protections for the primary components of our computer network, including firewalls and segmentation, meant that all our core operations continued smoothly.”
