THERE was no loss or compromising of data during a cyber attack on TSTT on October 9, 2023.

This is according to a release from the company on Monday.

It stated, “The company’s cyber security processes operated optimally and were able to restrict these criminals’ malicious plans.

“There was no loss or compromise of customer data, i.e, no data was deleted from TSTT’s databases or manipulated.

“At this time, the company has not corroborated data currently in the public domain purported to be TSTT’s customer information, and it should be noted that the various TSTT platforms generate terabytes of data.”

It stated that on October 9, 2023, cyber attackers attempted to gain unauthorised access to TSTT’s systems.

The release stated, “Cyber threats of this nature are a continuous feature of modern digital operating systems and telecommunications infrastructure is no exception to these threats and incursions.

“TSTT has continuously invested resources in the millions of dollars in its processes and IT infrastructure to protect its systems and the data it produces and stores.

“At the onset of the threat, TSTT’s incident response processes were swiftly activated. The company took immediate steps to minimise the security vulnerability, successfully isolating its systems and applications.”

It stated, “These applications were subsequently quarantined, rebuilt and put back into production as part of clearly defined policies and procedures.

“The company also enlisted the support of internationally recognised cyber security experts and partners in investigating the attempted breach and advising on the implementation of appropriate additional security measures and protocols. Some of these recommendations have already been implemented.

“TSTT strongly condemns the actions of these terrorists in unlawfully attempting to gain access to its customers’ information. The company will continue to invest in hardening its IT environments under the guidance of international cyber experts, to ensure the security of customer information.”
