“We have deployed all relevant resources to manage the situation and immediately decided to share detailed information during and after the attack. Volue has received tremendous support from our customers and positive feedback from the cyber experts and our position as a leading provider of safe operations is verified as battle proven. We have continually updated our customers that their applications are deemed safe and will keep sharing information with our customers” Straume says.
During the time following the cyber-attack, substantial efforts have been invested into restoring and safeguarding internal systems, networks and equipment. This has enabled rapid operational recovery to ensure customer deliveries, services and support can be delivered safely, with high quality and security. As Volue is a leading provider of systems and services to critical infrastructure, a trustworthy delivery is of utmost importance.
The cyber-attack has impacted Volue Technology’s (“Powel”) operations teams. Volue cannot see any impacts by the breach for Insight (“Wattsight”), Market Services (“Markedskraft”), Industrial IoT (“Scanmatic”) and Likron.
“The financial impacts from the cyber-attack are still uncertain, but we will continue to provide updates and expects to report the full extraordinary financial effects when presenting the second quarter 2021 financial results, or sooner,“ Straume concludes.
