MMS and Systems Update
Further to yesterday’s notice about the MMS site being down, it became apparent to our IT provider on Friday afternoon that BC Milk’s systems were the object of a cyber security attack along with at least 200 other organizations globally. All of our IT systems have been shut down to prevent any further damage and spread while our IT providers are testing system recovery processes which means the MMS producer, processor and transporter portals are not accessible and no system generated messages are being delivered. At this point, we believe that no personal or confidential information has been compromised.
Our IT providers have been working around the clock to resolve this issue and we do not expect to have to extend any June month-end reporting dates for processors next week. We will continue to keep all stakeholders updated of the situation through website and email communications.
We again apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
