Travelex is planning to resume its international money transfer services in the UK by the end of the month.
Earlier today, the company announced about the cyberattack that made it close down some of its systems, forcing the firm to offer exchange services manually. Travelex has come out to address the issue, pointing out that it has resolved the problem.
According to the company, the firm wants to continue its growth, which is why it has been taking positive steps towards expansions and development. The company said its first customer-facing system in the United Kingdom is now fully operational.
Travelex is now using electronic means to serve customers in the company’s UK stores and other partner locations in the country. Also, Travelex reiterated that it intends to start testing other locations outside the UK for the same service.
According to the company, its VAT refund service will now be available to customers in UK airports. The new development is part of the company’s goals for the worldwide restoration of the Travelex system.
All-round recovery progress has been made
Throughout the recovery period, the main goal is to make sure that all the systems are completely restored the way they were before the attack. Additionally, the firm has been making progress in the test of the UK supported systems for high-street banking partners.
The company has also made good progress in the restoration of the firm’s International monetary transfer services in the UK.
Travelex also thanks its customers for their faith and trust in the company to fix the issues. It reiterated that the firm would try to restore its systems as quickly as possible completely.
Travelex has also provided a dedicated page where customers can go to gain more information about the restoration of its systems.
Although the company doesn’t have the complete details about the encrypted data from the attack, there isn’t any evidence that shows any data has been corrupted.
Presently, Travelex is working hard to recover the systems. The company said it has succeeded in restoring the majority of the internal systems, which are now operating properly. It reiterated that the company would commence full operations very soon.
