Most of Lion’s key systems have been restored following a ransomware attack earlier in the month. All of its breweries are back up and running, the company said, with brewing, kegging, packaging and distributing beer underway at its nine major breweries in Australia and New Zealand. 

All dairy and juice sites are operational and across many parts of its business customers can place orders and view their invoices online.

The company said it is working on the remaining ordering platforms to get them operational as soon as possible.

It did warn there could be further disruptions as systems are restored.

“The timing of this attack – just as the hospitality industry is trying to get back on its feet post COVID-19 closures – could not have been more challenging for Lion and our industry partners.

“To date, we still do not have evidence of any data being removed. As we indicated last week, it remains a real possibility that data held on our systems may be disclosed in the future.  Unfortunately, this is consistent with these types of ransomware attacks,” it said.

The company was hit by the ransomware attack on 8 June, with a second incident 10 days later.

The company’s cyber help line remains open 24 hours, 7 days a week, and we encourage any Lion stakeholders that may have questions or concerns about the cyber attack to use this service.
