DNV’s ShipManager software was subject to a cyberattack on Saturday (7 January).

The assurance and risk-management company confirmed the cyberattack on Monday (9 January) and said it had shut down ShipManager’s IT servers in response to the incident.

ShipManager is software for fleet management. The system comprises modules that help manage different aspects of a fleet of vessels.

After the cyberattack, DNV said users can still use the offline functionalities of the software.

“At this point in time there are no indications that any other software or data by DNV is affected,” the company said.

“DNV experts are working closely with global IT security partners to investigate the incident and to put in place a technical recovery plan and will ensure operations are online as soon as possible.​”

The company said it is “in dialogue” with the Norwegian police about the incident.

“We apologise for the disruption and inconvenience this incident may have caused,” DNV said.
