Kawasaki: Cyber Incident May Have Resulted in Data Loss

  • Kawasaki Heavy Industries reported Monday that an unknown threat actor gained access to its internal network through servers located in an overseas office.
  • The breach was discovered on June 11, after an internal audit found an unauthorized connection between a company server in Japan and another corporate server located in Thailand, the company says. Communication with the Thai server was immediately severed, but the follow-up investigation found additional unauthorized connections.
  • Kawasaki says the six-month delay in reporting the incident was due to the scope of the attack and the large number of overseas offices that were involved.
