Description

Summary:

On September 30th, 2020, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) have released a joint Ransomware Guide that details practices that organizations should continuously engage in to help manage the risk posed by ransomware and other cyber threats. The in-depth guide provides actionable best practices for ransomware prevention as well as a ransomware response checklist that can serve as a ransomware-specific addendum to organization cyber incident response plans.

CISA encourages users and administrators to review the Ransomware Guide and CISA’s Ransomware webpage for additional information.

E-ISAC is re-sharing this information for your situational awareness.

Comment:

If any adversarial action is experienced due to ransomware or any other cyber threat, contact the E-ISAC Watch Operations Team, and create a Portal Post for instant community awareness.
