The White House just release a special document to the private sector about responsibility and steps to prevent ransomware.

Quoting directly from the document:

Companies that view ransomware as a threat to their core business operations rather than a simple risk of data theft will react and recover more effectively.

The document goes on to talk about best practices such as:

  • Utilizing Multifactor Authentication
  • Endpoint Detection and Response
  • Threat Hunting
  • Utilizing Threat Intelligence
  • Backing up your data and keeping it offline
  • Updating and patching systems
  • Testing your incident response plan
  • Penetration Tests
  • Segmenting Networks

These are all basic activities organization need to start implementing now. The ransomware threat is escalating, and your organization can be a target.
