Auction House Confirms Cyber Incident

Christie's confirms cyber-attack was an 'unauthorised access by a third party.'

In a LinkedIn post, Guillaume Cerutti, chief executive officer at Christie's confirmed that there had been a cybersecurity incident, and its subsequent investigation determined there was unauthorised access by a third party to parts of Christie's network.

Also some data was taken, including a limited amount of personal data relating to some clients, but he said there is no evidence of any financial or transactional data - related to clients or to Christie’s - being taken or copied.

A New York Times claimed that a group called ‘RansomHub’ had been responsible for the attack, and that Christie’s had refused to pay the ransom demand.
