COMPUTER INTRUSION AT LABORATOIRES EXPANSCIENCE
On October 22, 2020, part of the Laboratoires Expanscience computer system was the target of a cyber attack. In compliance with our risk management plan and as a precautionary measure, it was decided to isolate the IT system and turn off some of our system components.
With the assistance of outside experts, our Information Technology Division worked to gradually reboot all of our activities and implement increased security measures for our IT systems. As of November 3, 2020, these systems are operational.
This new cyber attack is in no way related to the attack we were victims of during the summer. It is part of a global upsurge in cyber criminality and concerns a different perimeter and operating mode.
