Every ransomware incident should be reported to the U.S. government. Victims of ransomware incidents can report their incident to the FBI, CISA, or the U.S. Secret Service. A victim only needs to report their incident once to ensure that all the other agencies are notified.
The Internet Crime Complaint Center provides the public with a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit information to the FBI concerning suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity. You can report a ransomware incident to the FBI.
CISA is the nation’s cyber defense center dedicated to preventing and responding to cyber incidents. You can report incidents through CISA's reporting tool.
