LATEST UPDATE FROM KWIK TRIP
This is the latest update, taken directly from Kwik Trips Facebook page:
Although a thorough forensic investigation is still ongoing, and further information may be uncovered, current findings indicate that we experienced a cybersecurity incident that caused disruption to systems located on our internal network on Monday, October 9th, 2023. The incident was detected within hours, and mitigation efforts began immediately.
They went on to say that they are still in the early stages of the investigation and that it takes time to complete; but as for now, it does NOT appear that any guest payment card information was involved.
WHAT SYSTEMS WERE AFFECTED?
The systems that were mostly impacted included the Kwik Trips loyalty program, and their facilities in La Crosse, Wisconsin production facilities.
As of Thursday, October 19th, most of Kwik Trips' internal systems are now functioning, and Kwik Rewards is back online and successfully processing loyalty transactions at many of their stores. They are hopeful that all stores will have that capability within the next few days.
