Federated Co-operatives Ltd. (FCL) said some of its operations are back up and running following a cybersecurity incident.

All 398 Co-op cardlock locations are now back online, FCL said Thursday (July 3).

The Western Canada co-operative had shut down some of its systems following the cyberattack last week. An investigation is underway.

Fuel supply to Co-op retail gas bars has been “relatively unaffected,” the company said.

There's no evidence at this time that consumer data has been compromised, the co-operative said in a statement released Saturday.

“We are making significant progress in restoring some operations,” FCL shared Wednesday. “The cybersecurity incident has slowed down certain aspects of our business, but we are prioritizing key grocery items and consumer goods for delivery to local Co-ops. We are working to recover from the incident, but ask for your patience as we continue to build our way back to regular operations.”
