Investigating potential cybersecurity incident affecting our IT system in the Americas – Olympus Global

If you’re the praying type, add the IR team for Olympus. They’re having a horrendous time…:

Olympus is currently investigating a potential cybersecurity incident detected October 10, 2021 that is affecting its Americas (U.S., Canada and Latin America) IT systems.

Upon detection of suspicious activity, we immediately mobilized a specialized response team including forensics experts, and we are currently working with the highest priority to resolve this issue. As part of the investigation and containment, we have suspended affected systems and have informed the relevant external partners. The current results of our investigation indicate the incident was contained to the Americas with no known impact to other regions.

We are working with appropriate third parties on this situation and will continue to take all necessary measures to serve our customers and business partners in a secure way. Protecting our customers and partners and maintaining their trust in us is our highest priority.

Our investigation is ongoing and we are committed to transparent disclosure and will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
