INCIDENT: MN Trucking and Logistics Company Hit by Ransomware Attack Again

On December 1, 2021, Bay & Bay Transportation's IT systems started acting up and soon became apparent that malware encrypted data on the company’s systems. The company had been down this road before. A ransomware attack in 2018 crippled its systems and led the company to pay the criminals.

“The good part of it is we have a lot better tools, systems and processes than we did three years ago, but we knew it was bad because the spread was more heinous than the other one,” Wade Anderson, Bay & Bay’s chief information officer, chief technology officer and head of marketing, told FreightWaves. The company was able to return to “90% functionality” within about a day in a half, Anderson said. He credited quick action, training and cloud-based backups with enabling a rapid recovery.
