As reported on the 2nd of February, we were hit by an aggressive ransomware attack on January 29th. Due to the ongoing investigation, we were not in the position to provide more information at that moment.
We can now inform you that on Monday, 31st of January, we were already up and running for 90%. This is thanks to our ICT structure, the adequate response from our IT department and the help of external professionals, in that weekend.
Unfortunately, (personal) data has been stolen and this might be made public. There is unfortunately no clear picture of which data has been leaked. We have therefore made a complete analysis of everything we have stored and contacted all potentially involved persons and partners. Of course, a police report has been filled out and an official report has been made to the Dutch Data Protection Authority.
Over the past few weeks, we've been checking all our systems for illegal software and ensuring we're secure again.
The consequences of this ransomware on our production process (which was already challenged by Covid-19) have therefore been kept to a minimum. This attack has ensured that we are now even better protected against attacks from outside. We will stay in touch with our partners in order to closely monitor future developments.
We remain open in our communication with you and especially want to thank everyone for the sympathetic feedback and the understanding of this situation.
