The LockBit ransomware gang claims to have compromised the network of Bridgestone Americas, one of the largest manufacturers of tires, and stolen data from the company. The Bridgestone Americas family of enterprises includes more than fifty production facilities and 55,000 employees throughout the Americas. LockBit operators plan to release the stolen data by March 15, 2022 if the company does not pay the ransom. On February 27, some company employees at Bridgestone’s La Vergne plant reported being sent home due to a possible cyber-attack. Bridgestone launched an investigation into the incident and hired a prominent consultant firm to understand the full scope and nature of the incident.
