On our own behalf: IT failures at ATRALOsecur

Dear customers and partners of ATRALOsecur,

with regard to the outages of our data centre, IT tools and customer portals, we regret to inform you that ATRALOsecur has become the target of a cyber attack.

We are currently investigating the incidents in our data centre, through which an unauthorised third party may have gained access to our systems. Due to the ongoing analysis, we are currently unable to draw any detailed conclusions about the nature and extent of the hacking attack. We are working intensively with internal and external experts (as well as the relevant authorities) as part of our IT security protocol and are investigating the incident in order to fully clarify its cause.

In the course of the attack, several of our IT systems (and thus also the IT tools and customer portals) have been taken offline (until further notice). Our IT team continues to work at full speed to resolve the outages and restore our IT services to you as quickly as possible.

Please note that we are once again available by email, landline and mobile phone. Your customer advisors / contact persons are available to you via the known telephone numbers and e-mail addresses.

We are aware of the current cyber security situation and our responsibility towards our customers. We are therefore working intensively on the incident and will inform you here on the website about further developments.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Yours sincerely
The Management Team of ATRALOsecur
Peter Kollatz, Daniel Ahrend

In addition to the established procedure for cyber attacks, outgoing mails and attachments are scanned by a leading managed endpoint detection and response software (MEDR).

When did you discover the IT security incident?

We identified the unauthorised access to our systems on 1 October 2023. All affected systems were immediately isolated and shut down to prevent further access. Together with external IT security experts and data forensic specialists, we immediately began analysing the incident and implementing further security measures.

No, these are available and will now be processed step by step, we will contact you again for this.

Our core divisions

Forwarder’s, carrier’s and warehouse keeper’s liability insurance

Freight forwarder’s liability insurance provides the policyholder with cover for his or her activities as a freight forwarder, carrier or warehouse keeper. He/she is in particular held liable for loss of or damage to the goods handed over to him/her and for failure to meet delivery deadlines.

Goods in transit insurance

Whether it is a transport accident, robbery, theft, fire, wrong delivery, physical damage, late delivery, piracy, customs seizure, strike, terror or war: the transport of goods involves numerous risks. In the event of loss or damage, the problems pile up. But first and foremost, the question that arises is: who will compensate for any loss or damage incurred?
