German Pump Manufacturer Down for 7 Days after Cyberattack

November 21, 2023


In February 2022, Kracht GmbH was attacked by unknown perpetrators, and important systems were brought to a halt. Systems were up and running again in seven days. The entire IT system was reorganized so the workforce could quickly return to day-to-day business.

"It was a worst case scenario, as unknown offenders managed to override our sophisticated security systems. We decided not to negotiate with the offenders." states Peter Schilg, Head of IT, Kracht GmbH
