ASX-listed IPH, which operates a group of intellectual property services firms, yesterday entered a trading halt to deal with a “cyber incident”.

In a brief filing, the company requested the halt “to enable it to manage its continuous disclosure obligations in relation to a cyber incident that IPH has recently become aware of”.

IPH said that on Monday it detected unauthorised access to document management systems, which include administrative documents, and some client documents and correspondence, at its head office and two member firms, Spruson & Ferguson (Australia) and Griffith Hack.

The group is said to employ over 1200 people, mostly in the Asia Pacific region, and it also has a presence in China and Canada.
