The United States has reaffirmed its intent to fight cybercrime. In fact, one general has revealed that ransomware in particular is now a concern of national security. General Paul Nakasone of the US Cyber Command revealed in an interview that specialists across the government are now looking to fight ransomware as a number one priority. Several high-profile attacks have caused concern to the US government in recent times, including the Kaseya and Colonial Pipeline attacks, and General Nakasone admitted that ransomware has grown from a criminal activity to become a threat to national security. He plans to expose the identity of hackers, as well as impose financial penalties, among other measures.
