Recycling giant TOMRA pulls systems offline following ‘extensive cyberattack’

Norwegian mining and recycling giant TOMRA says it has isolated tech systems as it deals with an “Extensive cyberattack.”

TOMRA has multiple divisions that focus on areas including waste and recycling solutions, metal sorting systems, mining machine systems and food sorting equipment.

A team of internal and external resources is working around the clock to resolve the situation, and affected systems will remain offline until it is safe to open them.

At a group level, internal IT services and some back office applications are still offline affecting supply chain management, and major office locations are offline and staff asked to work remotely.

The Recycling and Foods divisions are “Operating as usual” although some functionality is limited due to digital services being offline.

“Our primary aim is to continue to deliver our services to customers, reducing the impact this attack has on them. The attack currently has limited impact on TOMRA’s customer operations. Most of TOMRA’s digital services are designed to operate offline for a certain amount of time but may have reduced functionality in the interim,” the company said.
