Raimondo says 'all hands on deck' in U.S. government to avoid supply disruptions after Colonial hack

- U.S. government officials are working closely with top U.S. fuel pipeline operator Colonial Pipeline to recover from a ransomware cyberattack that forced it to shut down, hoping to avoid a disruption in supply, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said on Sunday.

"It's an all hands on deck effort right now," Raimondo said on CBS' "Face the Nation" program. "We are working closely with the company, state and local officials, to make sure that they get back up to normal operations as quickly as possible and there aren't disruptions in supply."
