Cyberattack at Staples Disrupts Internal Operations.

February 14, 2024


American office supply retailer Staples took some of its systems down to contain impact of a cybersecurity attack and protect customer data. Staples confirmed that it was forced to take protective action to mitigate what it described as a "cybersecurity risk." The response measures disrupted backend processing and product delivery.

In March 2023, Staples-owned distributor Essendant also experienced a multi-day outage that prevented customers and suppliers from placing or fulfilling online orders.
