This briefing shares the findings of a cross-sector task force of CISOs and staff who developed a comprehensive guide and toolkit for preventing, detecting, and responding to the ransomware threat. The Best Practices Guide: (1) prioritizes controls and strategies based on effectiveness, cost, and implementation difficulty; (2) provides insights on incident response and business continuity; (3) shares approaches for presenting the threat to the Board; and (4) offers perspectives on making the “pay or not pay” decision.
Supporting tools that will be shown during the briefing are:
• Ransomware Preparedness Questionnaire (preparedness measures and strategy options)
• Incident Response Reference Architecture (IR process and technology references)
• Boardroom Education and Presentations (communications to the Board)
• Pay-No-Pay Decision Criteria (discussion criteria for determining whether to pay the ransom)
Please join members of the Task Force as they share key insights and tools to help organizations effectively address the ransomware threat.
