Cyberattack against Targus

Targus, a well-known manufacturer of laptop sleeves and cases, has suffered a cyberattack that temporarily disrupted its business operations. According to its parent company, B. Riley Financial, a cybercriminal gained unauthorised access to certain Targus file systems. As a containment measure, the company disabled much of its network.

While the exact nature of the attack has not been disclosed, Targus is working to recover its systems and is working with authorities to investigate the unauthorised access to information. The incident came to light as a result of a new US SEC rule, which requires public companies to disclose cyberattacks that could have a material impact on investors within 96 hours of discovery.
