In July 2024, Tech Innovate Inc. fell victim to a sophisticated cyber-attack targeting their proprietary software development environment. The attackers, deploying ransomware known as LockFast, managed to encrypt vital development data, effectively halting the company’s operations. An initial investigation revealed that the breach was due to a vulnerability in an external API service used for project management. While the company promptly secured the breach and started recovery operations, the damage was significant. The attackers demanded a ransom of $2 million in cryptocurrency. Tech Innovate Inc. chose not to pay the ransom, citing adherence to law enforcement advice. Instead, they focused on reconstructing lost data from backups. The incident delayed product releases and resulted in a temporary dip in the company's stock value. There was also a notable impact on customer confidence, leading to a few clients postponing planned expansions.
