Omnicom Media Group reportedly falls prey to cyber attack

Janice Tan reports:

Omnicom Media Group has reportedly been hit by a cyber attack, resulting in the agency turning to third-party experts to identify the IT disruption, AdAge reported. OMG said it has experienced “disruption to parts of its IT network” in recent days, which was caused by a cyber incident. According to AdAge, OMG said it is confident that “no data is at risk”. While this has resulted in interruptions for some of its agencies outside of the US, it said operations are still going on as per normal and it has “made significant progress” on reinstating the functionality of the affected systems, AdAge added. MARKETING-INTERACTIVE has reached out to OMG for comment.

I didn’t read the original reporting because I refuse to turn off ad blocking.
