“It is too early to assess the long-term effects of the attack. It will certainly have a short-term impact on the pace of development work,” said Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt, in an interview with the ‘Rzeczpospolita’ daily. The company fell victim to a cyber attack this week.
Mr. Kiciński, when asked if the criminals mentioned a ransom, said that “there was no ransom demand in the information left by the criminals. There was, however, a threat of disclosure of stolen documents and data in the event of failure to comply with the demands, and information about waiting for contact within 48 hours”.
“To the best of our knowledge, there has been no leakage of personal data of players and other users of our services. At the moment, we are focusing on investigating the incident itself, securing infrastructure and restoring data, which is regularly backed up in line with our internal procedures, so it is too early to assess the long-term effects of the attack,” said Mr Kiciński. He added that the attack would certainly affect the pace of the studio’s development work in the short term.
The president of CD Projekt emphasised that the company is currently taking appropriate actions, including explanatory and verifying, in connection with the attack, and its “approach is in line with the communication practice used so far in similar cases in previous years.”
