Volue was today, 5 May 2021, subject to a cyber-attack impacting operation in some of the company’s business areas. Mitigating actions were immediately implemented.

“Our priority is to ensure safe and uninterrupted operations for our customers. Our short-term production capacity will be affected over the next few days. Still, it’s too early to indicate the operational and financial impact, as well as the timing to resolve the situation. Volue is doing its utmost to limit the impact on our customers and will continuously provide updates, “ Straume concludes.

Volue Technology’s (“Powel”) operations teams seem to be impacted by the attack. At this point, Volue cannot see any impacts by the breach for Insight (“Wattsight”), Market Services (“Markedskraft”), Industrial IoT (“Scanmatic”) and Likron.
