Less than a week before the Christmas holiday, French IT services company Inetum Group was hit by a ransomware attack that had a limited impact on the business and its customers.
Inetum is active in more than 26 countries, providing digital services to companies in various sectors: aerospace and defense, banking, automotive, energy and utilities, healthcare, insurance, retail, public sector, transportation, telecom and media.
As a services provider for a large number of companies and with a revenue of almost $2 billion, the group is an attractive target for ransomware gangs.
On Sunday, December 19, Inetum became the target of a ransomware attack that affected some of its operations in France and did not spread to larger infrastructures used by the customers.
None of the main infrastructures, communication, collaboration tools or delivery operations for Inetum clients has been affected, the company assures in a press release on Thursday.
