In an open letter sent from the White House Thursday, the National Security Council’s top cyber official, Anne Neuberger, called upon companies to take the risk of ransomware attacks far more seriously, listing ways these companies can protect themselves.
“All organizations must recognize that no company is safe from being targeted by ransomware, regardless of size or location,” wrote Neuberger. “We urge you to take ransomware crime seriously and ensure your corporate cyber defense match the threat.”
The letter comes just days after JBS Foods, the world’s largest meat supplier, was reportedly hit with a cyberattack from what the FBI believes to be Russian hackers. JBS said late Wednesday that it expects to be operating near full capacity by Thursday, CNN reports.
Neuberger’s letter, according to a White House official, was prompted by the shift from data theft to disrupting critical services in ransomware attacks that have been spiking under the Biden administration.
