Major German Regional Energy Company Hit by Cyberattack

October 31, 2022


Enercity, one of Germany’s largest municipal energy suppliers, confirmed it was targeted by a cyberattack on Wednesday morning. The Hannover-based company said its security systems “reacted immediately” and that “greater damage to the company” has been averted. Enercity confirmed that it would continue supplying energy to customers, explaining its operational technology and critical infrastructure was not affected. “Our grids and power plants are stable and the security of supply is guaranteed,” the company stated. However the attack has impacted customer service, which has limited availability. The company added: “Not all IT systems can currently be used to their full extent, which means that they may be minor restrictions.”
