NCA statement on the Eurofins cyber incident.

21 June 2019

Rob Jones, Director of threat leadership at the NCA said:

“The National Crime Agency is leading the criminal investigation into a recent cyber incident that has affected Eurofins Scientific.

“Specialist cyber-crime officers from the NCA are working with partners from the National Cyber Security Centre and the National Police Chief’s Council to mitigate the risks and assess the nature of this incident.

“We are securing evidence and forensically analysing infected computers, but due to the quantity of data involved and the complexity of these kinds of enquiries, this is an investigation which will take time, therefore we cannot comment further at this time.
