      Continental Informs – Cyberattack Averted

      Hanover, August 24, 2022. In a cyberattack, attackers infiltrated parts of Continental’s IT systems. The company detected the attack in early August and then averted it. Continental’s business activities have not been affected at any point. The technology company maintains full control over its IT systems. According to current information, the IT systems of third parties have not been affected.

      Immediately after the attack was discovered, Continental took all necessary defensive measures to restore the full integrity of its IT systems. With the support of external cybersecurity experts, the company is conducting an investigation into the incident. The investigation is ongoing.

      Continental informed the relevant authorities of the incident and is in close contact with them, including the security authorities. The company is aware of its data protection obligations and – in consultation with the responsible data protection authorities – is taking the necessary steps to ensure they are completely fulfilled.

      The security of its employees’, customers’ and partners’ information as well as of its own data is paramount to Continental. That is why Continental has taken and continues to take extensive measures to constantly strengthen cybersecurity at the company.
