CS Energy responds to cyber security incident

30 Nov 2021

We are responding to a ransomware incident that occurred on CS Energy’s ICT network on Saturday, 27 November.

The incident occurred on CS Energy’s corporate network and has not impacted electricity generation at our Callide and Kogan Creek power stations. Our power stations are continuing to generate and dispatch electricity into the National Electricity Market.

CEO Andrew Bills said CS Energy’s focus was on restoring the security of its network and supporting employees, customers and business partners with any questions they may have.

“CS Energy moved quickly to contain this incident by segregating the corporate network from other internal networks and enacting business continuity processes,” Mr Bills said.

“We immediately notified relevant state and federal agencies, and are working closely with them and other cyber security experts.

“We have contacted our retail customers to reassure them that there is no impact to their electricity supply and we have been regularly briefing employees about our response to this incident.

“Unfortunately, cyber events are a growing trend in Australia and overseas. This incident may have affected our corporate network, but we are fortunate to have a resilient and highly skilled workforce who remain focused on ensuring CS Energy continues to deliver electricity to Queenslanders.”
