This is the November 16, 2021 hearing on "Cracking Down on Ransomware: Strategies for Disrupting Criminal Hackers and Building Resilience Against Cyber Threats," held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Carolyn B. Maloney: "This has been an unprecedented year for cyber-attacks. The country is still reeling from last year's cyber-attack against the company SolarWinds that was linked to Russia and infected numerous Federal agencies. These attacks have been described as a wake-up call for America. It attacked all through the Federal Government and numerous private sectors also. [...] Ransomware attacks are a grave national security challenge. Today, we will hear from our witnesses about the 'whole of government' effort needed to disrupt ransomware networks and how we can help businesses, state and local governments, and others to prevent, prepare for, and respond to attacks." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Chris Inglis, Brandon Wales, and Bryan Vorndran.
