Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On June 28, 2020 Central European Time, FormFactor, Inc. (the “Company”) discovered a data breach incident involving malware and related behaviors that resulted in unauthorized access to our information technology systems. We believe that the incident was likely performed by the Maze ransomware group from IP addresses hosted in Central Europe. The incident has had no significant impact on the Company’s production and ordinary course operations.

Upon learning of the unauthorized access, the Company promptly retained an industry-leading cybersecurity firm, Mandiant of FireEye, Inc., to immediately respond to the threat, defend the Company’s information technology systems and conduct remediation. The Company has also made or will timely make the appropriate notifications of the incident to regulatory authorities.

The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
