Troutman Pepper: Systems down following cyberattack 

Outlook appeared to still be down earlier today (10 February) at Troutman Pepper following a cyberattack on Wednesday 8 February.  

Troutman says that it took its systems offline on 8 February to contain the threat after the attack became known: it is not yet clear what the nature or extent of the cyberattack is. In communication to staff published in full by US legal news publication Above the Law, Troutman said it was working diligently to restore Outlook and iManage. However as of this morning GMT, Legal IT Insider received a bounce back email from managing partner Tom Cole saying that a message sent on 9 February had not been delivered. In what is no doubt a fast changing situation we are currently trying to obtain updated information on the situation.

A spokesperson for Troutman told Legal IT Insider in a statement sent over LinkedIn: “We can confirm that on February 8, Troutman Pepper was a target of a cyberattack. Following our established protocols, we took immediate action to contain the threat and inspect thoroughly before we restore systems access. At this time, we have no reason to believe that any client data were compromised. We will continue to work with outside experts to recover systems, investigate, and respond accordingly.”
