«Since Friday, the United States Government has been working across the interagency to assess the Kaseya ransomware incident and assist in the response,» said Anne Neuberger, deputy national security advisor for cyber and emerging technology. «The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have been working with Kaseya and coordinating to conduct outreach to impacted victims.»
On Saturday, President Joe Biden said that the US government is not certain who is behind the attack, but he has directed federal agencies to assist in the response.
«The fact is that I directed the intelligence community to give me a deep dive on what’s happened and I’ll know better tomorrow. And if it is either with the knowledge of and/or the consequence of Russia, then I told Putin we will respond,» Biden said Saturday, referring to his meeting with the Russian leader last month.
«We’re not certain. The initial thinking it was not the Russian government but we’re not sure yet,» he added.
