PUTEAUX, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
The ORPEA group (Paris:ORP) detected during the night of September 17 the intrusion of malware on some of its servers. The IT security teams, fully mobilized, took immediate measures to secure the systems, isolate the servers concerned (less than 1% of all servers) and temporarily shut down the entire network, thus preventing the spread of the software.
This voluntary shutdown caused disruptions to the IT systems, but in no way affected the continuity of care and social life within the facilities.
After analysis by recognized cyber security experts and thanks to the responsiveness and proper functioning of the security systems, all backups are intact and no data has been destroyed or transferred. The Group's IT infrastructure, its software and applications and all data are sound and have not suffered any damage.
The IT teams and external cyber security experts are working actively to gradually restart all servers and applications. The executive management wanted this process to be carried out step by step with extreme vigilance and with all necessary precautions. The smooth running of both the facilities and the administrative services is ensured.
The ORPEA Group has informed the competent authorities of this malicious act. The Group's priority remains, naturally, to ensure the safety and well-being of its residents, patients, families and staff.
