Share post:

The United States government on Thursday unveiled an online hub to help victims of ransomware attacks find resources and get help.

The site, called www.StopRansomware.gov is run by the Department of Justice and Homeland security department

The site is the first of its kind that compiles ransomware resources of all federal government agencies.

In addition, the government announced that it will pay a $10 million reward to anyone who can provide tips on tracking down cybercriminals backed by foreign governments.

Both moves follow the recent attack on Kaseya, the hacking attack on JBS and the attack on the Colonial Pipeline.
