The US Government has escalated their war against ransomware by creating a new website that specializes in this subject. Ina news release on July 15, 2021 they provided the following information:
“The U.S. Government launched a new website to help public and private organizations defend against the rise in ransomware cases. StopRansomware.gov is a whole-of-government approach that gives one central location for ransomware resources and alerts. We encourage organizations to use this new website to understand the threat of ransomware, mitigate risk, and in the event of an attack, know what steps to take next.
The StopRansomware.gov webpage is an interagency resource that provides our partners and stakeholders with ransomware protection, detection, and response guidance that they can use on a single website. This includes ransomware alerts, reports, and resources from CISA, the FBI, and other federal partners.
We look forward to growing the information and resources on StopRansomware.gov and plan to partner with additional Federal Agencies who are working to curb the rise in ransomware.”
