In 2020, ransomware attackers made more than $350 million and caused terrible disruption, particularly in healthcare. Combatting this blight requires a comprehensive, multi-faceted strategy adopted in collaboration by governments around the world. To this end, the Ransomware Task Force brought together experts from governments, private, and nonprofit sectors to identify actions that would help to disrupt, deter, prepare for, and respond to, ransomware attacks at scale. In April of this year, the Task Force issued its report, detailing 48 recommendations. This session will provide an overview of the recommendations, discuss the rationale behind them, and clarify next steps.
