PARIS, July 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Like several other companies Saint-Gobain experienced an important cyber-attack on June 27, 2017. IT systems were disconnected to stop the spread of the virus and back-up working modes were immediately activated in all businesses of Saint-Gobain. No personal data has been disclosed to any third party.
Throughout the event all efforts have been made to ensure the continuity of our business and in particular to keep any impact on our customers to a minimum. The majority of our businesses are already operating normally. One week after the attack, substantial progress has been made to put all of our systems back on line with a full return to normal operations expected early next week.
Saint-Gobain designs, manufactures and distributes materials and solutions which are key ingredients in the wellbeing of each of us and the future of all. They can be found everywhere in our living places and our daily life: in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and in many industrial applications. They provide comfort, performance and safety while addressing the challenges of sustainable construction, resource efficiency and climate change.
