From the opening statement of Yvette Clarke: "While ransomware is not a new problem, the number of cases and the financial impact has skyrocketed since then. That is why I wanted to focus on ransomware at our first subcommittee hearing this year. We must understand the problem we are facing, learn more about how the Federal Government should respond, and do something. Estimates show that ransomware victims paid $350 million in ransom payments last year." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John A. Davis, Megan H. Stifel, Denis Goulet, and Christopher C. Krebs.
