Operational Impact at Electronics Company Alps Alpine Group

January 25, 2024

INCIDENT

ALPS' North American production operations and delivery was impacted by a ransomware incident on their systems. ALP promptly shut off the network connection of servers and other devices infected and reported they "are still working to restore equipment and production functions. At present, with the exception of our production bases in Mexico, we have resumed production and delivery with alternative methods for system failures."

North American employee data was reportedly leaked.

This follows on the heels of a separate attack on July 6, 2023, where an attack exfiltrated data on 16,000 employees.
