The U.S. Government launched a new website to help public and private organizations defend against the rise in ransomware cases. StopRansomware.gov is a whole-of-government approach that gives one central location for ransomware resources and alerts.
The mission of the IPR Center is to ensure national security by protecting the public’s health and safety, the U.S. economy, and our war fighters, and to stop predatory and unfair trade practices that threaten the global economy.
No More Ransom (NMR) is a non-commercial public-private partnership between law enforcement and industry leaders launched in July 2016. Its central governance is currently managed by the three founding members: Europol, the High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands’ Police and McAfee.

• assist victims in the recovery of their encrypted files;
• raise awareness of the problem of ransomware in the public arena;
• provide direct links to national police agencies worldwide to encourage citizens to report the cases.
