TNT cyber attack still hitting small firms

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has serious concerns over the continuing impact of last month’s NotPetya cyber attack on TNT small business customers.

The attack, which occurred four weeks ago, has been debilitating for some small firms who remain in the dark over when and if they can expect their goods to be delivered.

Mike Cherry, FSB National Chairman, said:

“There are small businesses in a state of paralysis, a month on from the attack, because their business relies on transporting goods through TNT. For a small business, this kind of disruption can be crippling and threaten their survival. Small business customers need accurate, clear and frequent updates from TNT to help them with their own contingency planning and a commitment to provide redress to those small businesses who have lost out.

“This is a stark reminder of the danger posed by cyber crime and how it can strike down smaller businesses indirectly, having a much wider impact on the economy. It serves as a major wake up call on the need to tackle and prevent the growing threat of cyber crime right across the business community".
