Europol and Security Leaders Declare War on Ransomware

In the summer of 2016, a unique coalition was formed to address the rapid growth of cybercrime conducted through the use of ransomware. Spearheaded by Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre, Dutch Police, Kaspersky, and Intel security, the goal of the No More Ransom Coalition is to provide a central, public repository of knowledge and resources to help individuals and organizations fight ransomware.
