On the Evening of Friday, 10th November, DP World suspended all port terminal operations due to a ” Cybersecurity System Breach”. This interruption has had repercussions in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Fremantle.
The cyber incident occurred amid an ongoing labour dispute between DP World Australia and dockworkers and other port positions represented by the Maritime Union of Australia. Initiated in October, the dispute concerns the company’s enterprise agreement with the union. Negotiations have reached an impasse, particularly on issues related to wage increases and work rule changes.
