White House Urges Stronger Business Ransomware Defense
As first reported on CNN, the White House issued an open letter Thursday to companies calling for greater urgency in preventing ransomware attacks following recent attacks by Russian hackers on key oil and food processing companies.
In the letter sent yesterday, the National Security Council's top cyber official, Anne Neuberger, urges business leaders to take ransomware more seriously.
"The most important takeaway from the recent spate of ransomware attacks is that companies that view ransomware as a threat to their core business operations rather than a simple risk of data theft will react and recover more effectively," Neuberger said, requesting that companies "immediately convene their leadership teams" to evaluate their exposure.
