U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement regarding the cyber attack against Disney which has held "Pirates of the Caribbean" ransom.

Digital hostage taking by these modern pirates will grow more frequent and the stakes will escalate. Government and industry should be bringing urgency to the table but few in Washington are paying attention."
