Lacroix Hit in Cyberattack

May 22, 2023


Global electronics maker, Lacroix, suffered a cyberattack that left three operating sites shut down, company officials said.
Lacroix said during the night of Friday May 12 to Saturday May 13, it intercepted a targeted cyberattack on the French (Beaupréau), German (Willich) and Tunisian (Zriba) sites of the electronics activity.
The company said it immediately took measures to secure all the Group’s other sites.
“Prior to restarting the systems of these sites, investigations are underway to ensure that the attack is completely contained,” the company said in a statement. “However, some local infrastructures have been encrypted and an analysis is also being carried out to identify any exfiltrated data.
The activity of these three sites represents 19 percent of the group’s total sales in 2022. The company does not feel there will be any significant impact on the performances for the Group.
