How Should a Company Handle a Ransomware Attack?

Sunday May 16, 2021. 05:34 PM , from Slashdot
ITWire reports on how Norwegian firm Volue Technology handled a ransomware attack that began on May 5th:

The company has set up a Web page with information about the attack and also links to frequent updates about the status of its systems. There was no obfuscation about the attack, none at all. The company said: 'The ransomware attack on Volue Technology ('Powel') was caused by Ryuk, a type of malware usually known for targeting large, public-entity Microsoft Windows systems.'

What is even more remarkable about this page is that it has provided the telephone number and email address of its chief executive, Trond Straume, and asked for anyone who needs additional information to contact him. Not some underling.

ITWire argues this response 'demonstrated to the rest of the world how a ransomware attack should be handled.'
