Strange hostage situation in Denmark right now

In business culture on July 1, 2015 at 05:34

A hostage has been taken inside the headquater of the National Board of Industrial Injuries in Denmark.

The police has surrounded the facility and has started to talk with the hostage takers.

The problem is that the hostage takers are not inside the building together with the hostage. Alle the employees has been asked to take days off and don’t answer the phones. The hostage is their mainframe and it has been taken hostage by hackers located somewhere outside Denmark when they managed to install ransomware on the system.

The negotiations are slow. Rumors speak of that the police managed to get the hostage takers print several reports to show good will.

Maybe the negotiations will take a year or two. A huge part of our policeforce will be tied up surrounding the building. But in the long run the system will be given back. What impact does it have on our society?

Not much. If you get an injury in Denmark they will on average use 10 to 15 years to deal with your case. What are you going to live of while they deal with your case? Help from your family!

The system was not designed to help people. It was designed for combat unemployment among case workers.

I fear for the security of our public IT-systems.

Not very far ago CSC was hacked without anyone noticing it. As result everyone could access our databases for drivers licenses making identity theft of every Dane possible. IT-experts outside Denmark discovered it and alarmed our police after several months.

Months before CSC fired expensive IT-experts from Denmark and imported cheap labor from India. The security level were lowered to adjust it to the qualifications of the new employees creating the possibility of a massive security breach.

And now this hostage situation.

Life is hard for us Danes.
