Ransomware and digital extortion attacks have seen recent dramatic increases. Because of the growing threat, financial institutions, their clients, and account holders need trusted resources to stay well-informed of the latest developments and combat fraud.

A new ransomware resource

The U.S. government announced a new resource to help mitigate risk on Wednesday, July 14. A collaborative effort across federal agencies, StopRansomware.gov serves as a one-stop hub of resources to help FIs, individuals, businesses, and other organizations stay secure from ransomware attacks.

Before the site’s launch, finding important information could prove challenging and confusing. Now, consumers have a single platform to access clear guidance for reporting attacks, the most recent ransomware-related alerts, and news from all participating agencies.

Visit StopRansomware.gov to access this valuable resource.
