with this message we conclude our news ticker on the cyber attack. Our goal was to keep you continuously informed about our progress and to present the current situation as transparently as possible. Your understanding of the situation, your trust and your loyalty have motivated us even more to be the reliable and trustworthy partner you have come to expect from mk again as soon as possible. In the following, we would now like to present some final information.
We have successfully taken the necessary steps to strengthen our IT infrastructure. In parallel, additional security measures have been implemented to make our systems more resilient to future threats and to protect us even more effectively.
All processes and systems that are critical and elementary for order processing have been re-established. We are able to deliver again in all business areas. Some remaining support processes and systems will be restored in the near future, so that you will be able to enjoy all the usual services again as quickly as possible.
Finally, we thank you again for your patience and loyalty and look forward to our continued partnership. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
With kind regards

From now on we can inform you again about delivery dates in our offers and order confirmations. In addition, we have rescheduled all accumulated orders and sent updated order confirmations to our customers. Please note that due to the high backlog of orders and the backlog in processing, there is some uncertainty in the delivery dates, so there may be some postponements. We ask for your understanding for this situation.
On a positive note, we are gradually moving back towards normal operations. Despite some remaining construction sites, we are confident that we will successfully tackle and complete them in the near future and that eventually all processes will run smoothly again.
We will continue to keep you informed of all progress at this point. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Dear business partners, customers and employees,
the headquarters of the mk Technology Group in Troisdorf became victim of a cyber attack between May 15th and 16th, 2023.
Due to this, we have shut down all systems for security and our IT department is working together with external specialists on an orderly restart of the systems. As a result, no material movements are possible at the moment and communication is restricted.
We are working flat out to get our business operations back on track as quickly as possible and to be available to you again.
We will inform you here about further developments
