Colonial Pipeline Co. CEO Joseph Blount returned to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to answer additional questions from lawmakers about his company's response to the ransomware attack that affected the firm's operation for nearly a week, as well as his decision to pay the attackers.
For more than two hours Wednesday, Blount answered questions from Republicans and Democrats on the House Committee on Homeland Security about the ransomware attack. The CEO told lawmakers that his company didn't notify the FBI for two days that the ransom had been paid, and representatives also heard testimony that the attackers likely compromised the company's network in April.
