Item 7.01
Regulation FD Disclosure.
 
On January 9, 2020, AutoWeb, Inc. (“Company” or “AutoWeb”) discovered that its network was impacted by malware that encrypted servers on most systems and disrupted consumer and customer access to many of our services.
 
In connection with this incident, third-party consultants and forensic experts have been engaged to assist with the restoration and remediation of systems and to investigate the incident. While most impacted systems are once again operational, work is ongoing to restore full system functionality as quickly as possible. At this time, the Company has not discovered evidence that causes the Company to conclude that there has been any unauthorized access to or acquisition of any consumer personal information or customer confidential information.
 
The Company carries insurance, including cyber insurance. The full scope of the costs and related impacts of this incident, including the availability of insurance to offset some of these costs and related impacts of this incident, have not been fully determined.
