KIA Georgia said it had resumed production Thursday after a “cybersecurity issue” that led to a disruption to its normal schedule.

The company said Thursday that it continues to work on the issue after being alerted by a supplier.

“On Wednesday, Kia Georgia was alerted by a supplier of a cybersecurity issue that resulted in a disruption to our regular production schedule. Production resumed at the plant on Thursday morning. Kia Georgia will continue to work closely with the supplier to minimize further impact,” said Patrick Sands, Team Relations Head (Communications) at Kia Georgia. 

On Wednesday afternoon, the company had confirmed the disruption.

“Kia Georgia is working closely with the supplier to minimize impact and anticipates a prompt return to normal operations,” Sands said in an email Wednesday.
