  • Blog: Ransomware: Can it hurt you?

    Washington, D.C. – Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), a member of the House Rules Committee and Republican Leader of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, penned another blog addressing another common emerging technology concern - Ransomware.

    Burgess starts the blog off by highlighting research that sites the increase of cyber-attacks during this Coronavirus pandemic. He writes that “the most common of these attacks is ransomware, where a hacker sends malware to a target that encrypts data, devices, and networks and demands payment for the decryption key. If a target has not prepared for such an attack, the only remedies are to pay the ransom or to reject the ransom and rebuild network systems and infrastructure from scratch – a process that can take weeks or months. According to Check Point Research, ransomware attacks have doubled in the United States in 2020 and increased by 50% worldwide in the last 3 months." Read the full article here.
