I thought this is something well worth sharing.

Law enforcement and IT Security companies have joined forces to disrupt cyber-criminal businesses with ransomware connections.  

The “No-More-Ransom” website is an initiative by the National High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands’ police, Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre and two cyber security companies – Kaspersky Lab and Intel Security – with the goal to help victims of ransomware retrieve their encrypted data without having to pay the criminals.  

Since it is much easier to avoid the threat than to fight against it once the system is affected, the project also aims to educate users about how ransomware works and what countermeasures can be taken to effectively prevent infection. 

I would be interested in hearing about any company that has used this service?
