India’s leading pharmaceutical company Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories has temporarily shut down some of its production facilities in the wake of a cyber attack in the early hours of Thursday.
While a statement from the drugmaker said it had isolated all data centre services to take required preventive actions after the detection of a cyber attack, sources said as a precautionary measure the company had also temporarily shut down some of the production facilities. Details of the units were not immediately available.
In an intimation to the stock exchange, the company said “in the wake of a detected cyber-attack, we have isolated all data centre services to take required preventive actions.”
CIO Mukesh Rathi said “we are anticipating all services to be up within 24 hours and we do not foresee any major impact on our operations due to this incident.”
