The National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force (NCIJTF) has released a joint-sealed ransomware factsheet to address current ransomware threats and provide information on prevention and mitigation techniques. The Ransomware Factsheet was developed by an interagency group of subject matter experts from more than 15 government agencies to increase awareness of the ransomware threats.  CISA launched the Reduce the Risk of Ransomware Campaign in January to provide informational resources to support organizations’ cybersecurity and data protection posture against ransomware.  Please see CISA’s Ransomware webpage for additional resources to combat ransomware attacks.
