More than a week after it was hit by a self-admitted cyber attack, Toyota Australia's corporate IT systems are still offline, the company says on its website.

The company continues to say that it does not believe that customer and employee data has been compromised. The attack is said to have been noticed on 19 February.

The notice seen on Friday said the company's guest experience centre was back online. The attack was made public on 21 February.
