(U) Ransomware Attacks Straining Local US Governments and Public Services, PIN

Classification: TLP:WHITE

Dissemination: Subject to standard copyright rules, TLP:WHITE information may be distributed without restriction

Issue Date: 30 March 2022

Source: FBI

Summary: The FBI is informing Government Facilities Sector (GFS) partners of cyber actors conducting ransomware attacks on local government agencies that have resulted in disrupted operational services, risks to public safety, and financial losses. Ransomware attacks against local government entities and the subsequent impacts are especially significant due to the public's dependency on critical utilities, emergency services, educational facilities, and other services overseen by local governments, making them attractive targets for cyber criminals. Victim incident reporting to the FBI between January and December 2021 indicated local government entities within the GFS were the second highest victimized group behind academia.
