Basler AG was the target of a cyberattack

Ahrensbourg, November 16, 2021. On Monday, November 15, 2021, Basler AG was the target of an external cyber attack which is currently causing massive disruption to the company’s IT infrastructure. As an immediate action, all of the group’s IT systems were instantly shut down in a controlled manner.

Basler AG is prepared for such a scenario and immediately set up a working group of internal and external IT and forensic experts who are currently undertaking a thorough investigation of the incident. At the same time, the prosecuting authorities were called in and a criminal complaint was filed. In addition, notifications have been made to the respective competent data protection authorities in the country and abroad.

According to current knowledge, the attack was directed particularly against Basler AG and explicitly not against Basler’s customers or business partners.

Basler AG has insurance against cybersecurity attacks. Based on current knowledge, Basler AG assumes that disruptions and associated business disruptions will almost certainly be resolved within such a time frame that it will not be necessary to adjust the growth forecasts (as of November 4, 2021: group sales between 210 and 220 million euros with a pre-tax profit margin of between 13 and 15%). In addition, Basler AG assumes that the damage and expenses caused by the cyber attack will be fully covered by the insurance.

The protection of the customer and his data is the top priority for Basler AG. The specialist is working with great pressure on the secure restoration of the affected systems as quickly as possible so that the business partners can soon again fully use the service to which they are accustomed.
