From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 4551, the 'Reporting Attacks from Nations Selected for Oversight and Monitoring Web Attacks and Ransomware from Enemies (RANSOMWARE) Act,' amends the U.S. SAFE WEB Act of 2006 (SAFE WEB Act) to require the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to report to Congress, one year after the date of enactment and every two years after, on cross-border complaints received by the FTC, numbers and details of such complaints that were acted upon and not acted upon, and how it used the authorities granted by the SAFE WEB Act in response. The bill amends the existing reporting requirements to require the FTC to, in addition, address cross-border incidents that involve ransomware and other cyberattacks from foreign actors. It also requires the FTC to report on cross-border complaints received that involve ransomware or other cyber-related attacks committed by Russia, China, North Korea, or Iran or individuals or companies that are located in or have ties to those countries."
