Ransomware Joint Advisory

This is a joint cyber security advisory from the Trinidad and Tobago Cyber Security Incident Response Team (TT-CSIRT), Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Cyber and Social Media Unit (TTPS CSMU) and the National Information and Communication Technology Company Limited (iGovTT). This advisory serves to warn all entities within Trinidad and Tobago about increased ransomware attacks in the Latin American and Caribbean region. Entities in the region are being specially targeted by sophisticated threat actors leading to the compromise of both private sector and government entities.

The members of this joint cyber security advisory urge all organizations to adopt a heightened state of awareness and be prepared for potential attacks. Detailed information on how to prepare for and response to ransomware can be found at the following links:
