Update concerning the temporarily restricted access to your edpnet account

Dear Customer,

On 11 March 2024, we informed you that unauthorised persons accessed our administrative systems due to a cyber attack. By responding quickly and appropriately, the incident was limited to a few administrative systems and did not impact your edpnet connection.

What is the status today?

We have been available by phone, e-mail and web chat since last week. So don’t hesitate to contact our helpdesk if you encounter a technical problem. Our team will be happy to help you. You can also contact us again for administrative questions.

Unfortunately, it is currently not yet possible to log on to my edpnet. We understand that this is annoying. The edpnet team is working on the availability of my edpnet with the highest priority.

What can you do yourself?

Thanks to our quick action, our central database containing all customer data was safeguarded in this attack. Given the increase in cybercrime, we would like to provide you with some general tips and recommendations that you can use in the context of preventing a cyber incident:

  • Use unique and strong passwords: Create a unique password for each online service. Use a mix of letters, numbers and special characters to strengthen the password. Consider using a password manager to generate strong passwords and store them securely.
  • Be alert to spam and phishing: After a cyber incident, spam and phishing emails may circulate that try to steal your personal information. Be extra careful and do not open emails that seem suspicious or come from unknown senders. Definitely do not click on links or attachments in suspicious emails.
  • Use secure connections: Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks to perform sensitive online operations, such as financial transactions or entering personal information.
  • Update your software regularly: Make sure your software, including your PC or smartphone operating system and antivirus software, is always up-to-date. Software developers regularly release updates to plug known security holes.

We will keep you further updated as soon as we have more news. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Best regards,
The edpnet team
