We can confirm that the incident on September 8, 2021 was an attempted malware attack affecting parts of our sales and manufacturing networks in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa). We immediately suspended data transfers in these areas and informed the relevant external parties. We would like to reassure all our customers and partners that our daily business operations are working as normal, ensuring the uninterrupted supply of our services for patients.

We have reported the incident to the relevant government authorities. We will continue to take all necessary measures to serve our customers and business partners in a secure way.

According to the results of the investigation so far, no evidence of loss, unauthorized use or disclosure of our data has been detected. There is also no evidence that the cybersecurity incident affected any systems outside of the EMEA region.

Protecting our customers and partners and maintaining their trust in us is a top priority. We take the safety and security of data very seriously and we will continue to take measures to enhance our IT security.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this incident.
