“We have always recognised that constant vigilance is required to protect against intrusions because of our understanding that even the most diligent cybersecurity efforts have not been able to address all cyber risks that organisations face. This is why, unfortunately, malicious attacks and intrusion efforts are continuous and evolving, and in certain cases, they have been successful at the most robust institutions.

“We remain committed to our godly values, and we will neither fail nor falter in this regard. Please keep an eye out for anything suspicious, and ‌let us know if you continue getting any strange messages.

Rest assured, we have secured our network already”, the statement concluded.
