Brynjar Larssen-Aas Is Volue’s First Chief Information Security Officer
Following the cyber incident at Volue in May 2021, Volue made a commitment to invest significantly in combating cyber threats, including investing in people, technology, training, penetration testing, and working with the community.
“This incident is something that the organisation has really learnt from and I am very happy that Brynjar Larssen-Aas who led our response team during the cyber incident has accepted the role of Chief Information Security Officer,” says Arnstein Kjesbu, CFO at Volue. “We are investing heavily in security both for the sake of Volue internally as well as to safeguard customer services, applications and data.”
Cybersecurity is an important focus area for Voule and the new Chief Information Security Officer will work closely with all parts of the organisation to ensure cybersecurity preparedness.
“Cyber threats are no longer a hypothetical threat for us. We now understand better than ever the real consequences and urgency. I look forward to making this the focus of my work at Volue,” says Brynjar Larssen-Aas.
Even though cyberattacks are widespread, energy and critical infrastructure companies such as Volue are increasingly targeted as they provide services critical to society.
Brynjar Larssen-Aas has been with Volue for over 15 years and has been key in building internal IT, certifying Powel, one of Volue’s founding companies, to the ISO 27001 security standard and establishing the company’s security framework. He is currently Volue’s Head of IT Operations and part of the Security Steering Group.
