Press release





Information on a cyber attack

On the 24th of January 2019, Altran was the target of a cyber attack affecting operations in some European countries.

To protect our clients, employees and partners, we immediately shut down our IT network and all applications. The security of our clients and of data is and will always be our top priority. We have mobilized leading global third-party technical experts and forensics, and the investigation we have conducted with them has not identified any stolen data nor instances of a propagation of the incident to our clients.

Our recovery plan is unfolding as expected and our technical teams are fully mobilized.

Throughout the process, Altran has been in contact with its clients, relevant governmental authorities and regulators.
