Joe Biden is encouraging international attacks on American infrastructure.
His feebleness is having a profound effect on the American economy.
Joe Biden came out and made an admission of weakness that startled everyone.
On May 7, 2021 a cyber-attack shut down the Colonial Pipeline which caused the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to issue a regional emergency declaration for 17 states and Washington, D.C.
The Colonial Pipeline Company quickly paid the $4.4 million requested ransom to the criminal hacking group DarkSide which is Russian.
The attacks seem to be increasing under President Joe Biden according to Chris Butera, head of Threat Hunting for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
“The ransomware actors have become more brazen,” Butera said. “They’ve started to exfiltrate data and try to extort payments.”
Butera added that he believes he’ll “continue to see” the ransomware attacks happen and he advised companies not to pay the ransoms.
Instead of being proactive finding the criminals who messed with American infrastructure, Biden instead is merely encouraging business leaders to avoid being targeted, according to a new memo.
“The private sector also has a critical responsibility to protect against these threats,” Neuberger wrote in the memo, which was obtained by the Daily Caller from the White House. “All organizations must recognize that no company is safe from being targeted by ransomware, regardless of size or location. But there are immediate steps you can take to protect yourself, as well as your customers and the broader economy.”
The memo outlines five steps businesses can use, such as backing up data, segmenting networks, and testing the response plan.
“We urge you to take these critical steps to protect your organizations and the American public. The U.S. Government is working with countries around the world to hold ransomware actors and the countries who harbor them accountable, but we cannot fight the threat posed by ransomware alone,” according to the memo. “The private sector has a distinct and key responsibility. The federal government stands ready to help you implement these best practices.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blamed the companies themselves for being attacked when asked why attacks are increasing under Biden.
“On the JBS hack, these hackers based in Russia have disrupted American gas supplies and American meat supplies,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said. “Why do you think that these ransomware attacks have been rising since President Biden took office?”
“Well, first, I would say these are private sector entities who have a responsibility to put in place measures to protect their own cybersecurity,” Psaki responded. “As it relates to why criminal actors are taking actions against private sector entities, I don’t think I’m the right one to speak to that.”
