Ransomware and Government

Was afraid of this ...

The Government's Still Mostly in the Dark on Ransomware

By The Washington Post, May 24, 2022

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chair Gary Peters released a report on the government's limited visibility into ransomware attacks.

The government is largely in the dark when it comes to the scale of ransomware attacks pummeling schools, local governments and businesses, a congressional report out this morning warns.

Government officials don't reliably know how many attacks there are, how badly those attacks are hurting victims or how much victims are paying to rid themselves of the malicious software that locks up their computers and data. That's the troubling assessment of a 10-month investigation by Democratic staffers on the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
