INCIDENT

The hosting service provider of the German Energy Agency Dena has fallen victim to a ransomware attack. This led to a failure of the biogas register. All systems were immediately switched off.

Dena has decided to set up the biogas register system on the servers of another external data center operator. “This serves as a safeguard in case the existing server structure could no longer be used,” it says.
