20-December-2022 Media statement relating to breach of certain historical Keppel T&T data

  • Server with certain historical files accessed by unauthorised third party

  • Existing IT systems and infrastructure not affected

Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation Ltd (KTT) recently discovered that an unidentified hacker (or hacker group) had accessed a server previously owned and used by KTT on which some old KTT files were stored. The incident did not involve nor affect any existing IT systems or infrastructure of KTT.

Upon learning of the incident, KTT immediately commenced an investigation, with a team of leading international cybersecurity and digital forensics experts. The incident was limited to the server and there has been no compromise of any of the IT systems of KTT and the data on KTT’s IT systems remain secure. Immediate steps were taken to contain the incident and stop any further intrusions.

KTT has determined that the files on the server contained, among other information, certain personal data of KTT’s and some of its affiliates’ employees and ex-employees, as well as former KTT shareholders prior to KTT’s de-listing from the Singapore Exchange (SGX-ST). The data involved is historical data, some of which may no longer be current / applicable.

KTT is contacting the relevant parties whose data may have been compromised and affected by this incident. It has notified the relevant authorities and is working closely with them on this matter.

KTT regrets the inconvenience this cyber-attack has caused its stakeholders and would like to thank them for their patience and understanding as it continues its investigation into the breach. KTT has set up a dedicated channel to provide support and assistance to any affected individuals.
