Largest London bus operator hit by cyberattack

UK travel company Go-Ahead Group announced that it is dealing with a cybersecurity incident after detecting unauthorised activity on its network on Monday, September 5, 2022.

Go-Ahead Group is London’s largest bus operator, managing routes on behalf of Transport for London (TfL). The company also operates Govia Thameslink Railway in a joint venture with Keolis, although it remains unaffected by the incident.

According to a variety of reports, bus and driver rosters were targeted by threat actors on Monday. Despite the attacks, the Group stated that “there is no impact on UK or international rail services which are operating normally.”

The company further confirmed in a statement that Go-Ahead swiftly took precautionary measures upon discovering the incident.

"Upon becoming aware of the incident, Go-Ahead immediately engaged external forensic specialists and has taken precautionary measures with its IT infrastructure whilst it continues to investigate the nature and extent of the incident and implement its incident response plans.”

Currently, it remains unclear who was responsible for the attack.

"As a precaution, Go-Ahead has notified relevant regulators, including the Information Commissioner's Office in the UK,” the company’s statement concludes.
