The presidency was shared, through a post on Facebook, accompanied by a statement about it Youtube.
He explained that the relevant authorities were immediately contacted, in anticipation of the impact of the attack, “the extent of which is still being evaluated.” He announced that the matter had to reduce some services, namely:
- CC folder or questions sent via email to [email protected];
- Order location;
- Access to invoices.
- TOConline licenses;
- Registration for on-demand events and other services based on the CC folder and website.
Finally, President Paola Franco informed that communication with members “is done through the call center service […] and face-to-face service,” and that “add-on, incidental, and e-learning training continues as normal.”
