Sopra Steria, one of the world’s biggest IT services companies, has reportedly been hit with the Ryuk ransomware.
Sopra Steria Group SA is a giant IT firm whose business areas span consulting services, systems integration, enterprise resource planning, implementation of applications, technical support, outsourcing services and professional processes operation.
With around 45,000 employees and offices in 25 countries, the France-based company even lists cybersecurity services among its offerings. But that’s not to say it can’t fall victim to a cyberattack itself. And, according to recent reports, that’s precisely what happened on Tuesday, when ransomware operators reportedly encrypted parts of its network.
