As much of the nation’s public and private sector continues to suffer the damage, destruction and disruption caused by a ransomware data breach, it remains critical for all organizations to take appropriate steps to implement the protection and resilience required to reduce their risk. These data breaches, often involving sensitive or personal information, can cause financial loss to the victim organization and erode customer trust.
In this fact sheet, CISA encourages organizations to adopt a heightened state of awareness and implement the recommendations to reduce their risk to ransomware and protect sensitive and personal information. Public and private sector partners will find information on preventing and responding to ransomware-caused data breaches.
This resource is the latest addition to StopRansomware.gov, the new government website established by CISA last month with a wide array of resources to combat ransomware from various federal agencies and industry partners. We encourage you to review this website as well as this fact sheet.
