The Emil Frey Group has been the victim of a cyber attack. The largest car dealer in Europe announced this in a media release on Tuesday evening.

There is currently a large notice on the car dealer's website that the company is facing "technical difficulties." It is not known if the technical difficulties are a ransomware attack - in which cyber criminals encrypt information and release it for a ransom.

News of the attack on Emil Frey Group comes just days after Switzerland's only newsprint mill also suffered a cyber attack. Last Friday, hackers paralyzed production at CPH Chemie & Papier in Perlen in the canton of Lucerne.

«I want it all! The terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles!» – these words spoken by an iconic American TV celebrity could have been mine. It's a take on life I also apply to my job. What does this mean in concrete terms? That every story has its charm; no matter how small, large, exciting or trivial. The more eclectic the mix, the better.
