SPIE: target of a cyber attack

Published on 10 August 2020

Cergy, 10 August 2020 – SPIE was recently targeted by a ransomware attack, with no material impact on its operations.

The cyber attack, which took place in the night between July 13th and 14th, came from the Nefilim ransomware, which has targeted numerous companies in several countries over the past two months.

IT applications affected by this cyber attack were rapidly restarted and its impact on the company’s operations was very limited.

However, data from a very limited number of clients were stolen. The Group immediately notified official data protection authorities and national agencies for information systems security. The customers concerned were very rapidly contacted and a complaint was filed with the authorities.
