Fierce Biotech

German biotech Evotec is on high alert after a late-week cyberattack prompted the company to shut down its network.

Evotec says that unusual activity was noticed on its IT systems on April 6, prompting the company to take its digital infrastructure offline. A forensic examination of the breach is underway to learn the extent of the attack and relevant authorities have been notified, according to an update posted Monday. Evotec says that “business continuity is upheld” across the company’s sites but that systems remain unconnected and there may be delays or slower responses to partners.
