• Läderach affected by cyber attack
    Bilten, September 6, 2022 – Swiss chocolatier Läderach became the target of a cyber attack on September 5. Immediately after the attack was detected, the emergency board, which was established for such cases, was commissioned to verify the incident as well as to decide on further measures to contain the problem. The relevant authorities were informed immediately. As of today, it can be said that production, logistics and administration in particular are currently affected. On the other hand, all branches in Switzerland and abroad have been able to open regularly, and local sales have not been affected. Online orders via the webshop are still possible, but there may be delays in delivery. The full extent of the impact is subject to further investigation. As a precautionary measure, the use of internal work tools and communication channels has been reduced to a necessary minimum. The Emergency Board, together with external IT and forensic experts, is working at full speed to further analyze and resolve the issues.
