Leaders of the Group of 7 (G7) have asked Russia to urgently disrupt the actions of ransomware groups within their country. In the release, G7 leaders also expressed their commitment to work together to address the escalating and immediate threat that ransomware groups pose to the world. “We call on all states to urgently identify and disrupt ransomware criminal networks operating from within their borders, and hold those networks accountable for their actions,” the G7 leaders (from the UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, and Italy, plus the EU) said at the G7 Cornwall Summit. This call to action for Russia comes after the White House National Security Council expressed their concern about ransomware and urged companies to take these attacks seriously. Most notably, the G7 warned companies to report ransomware incidents as soon as possible to limit the amount of damage they could cause.
