America's Data Held Hostage: Case Studies in Ransomware Attacks on American Companies
United States. Congress. Senate. Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
Portman, Robert J. (Robert Jones), 1955-
From the Executive Summary: "More than ever before, cyber criminals have the ability to disrupt Americans' lives from anywhere in the world. Over time, attackers' tactics have evolved and improved and cyberattacks now have the potential to paralyze entire industry sectors. Organizations are racing to update their systems and improve their defenses to counter this threat. The proliferation of ransomware attacks is a primary example of this challenge. [...] This report details the attacks by Russia-based ransomware group REvil [Ransomware Evil] on three American companies, and the experiences of those companies during the incident response. The goal of this report is to provide information companies and agencies can use to prepare for and respond to ransomware attacks."

This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
