Ransomware advisories

The Treasury Department announced yesterday that its Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence today issued a pair of advisories to assist U.S. individuals and businesses in efforts to combat ransomware scams and attacks, which continue to increase in size and scope.

FinCEN issued an advisory [FIN-2020-A006], entitled "Advisory on Ransomware and the Use of the Financial System to Facilitate Ransom Payments," to provide information on the role of financial intermediaries in payments, ransomware trends and typologies, and related financial red flags. It also provides information on effectively reporting and sharing information related to ransomware attacks.

OFAC also issued an advisory, entitled "Advisory on Potential Sanctions Risks for Facilitating Ransomware Payments," to highlight the sanctions risks associated with facilitating ransomware payments on behalf of victims targeted by malicious cyber-enabled activities.
