NIWA supercomputer back online

NIWA supercomputer back online

NIWA has confirmed there were unauthorised attempts to access its supercomputer late last week.

As a precaution, NIWA took the supercomputer offline and immediately undertook a series of tests with the assistance of IBM. NIWA is able to confirm that the unauthorised attempts to gain access to the supercomputer were unsuccessful.

After taking a number of mitigation steps, the supercomputer was back online on Saturday evening with all normal services resumed.

The National Cyber Security Centre has been kept fully informed throughout the process.

The supercomputer is used to run scientific models and services and no sensitive personal or client information is stored on it.
