Our Ransomware Risk Assessment evaluates program activities and documentation to identify areas for improvement.
The foundation of the assessment are documents and advisories from reputable sources such as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Remaining practices have been developed by Gideon Rasmussen based on 20+ years of cybersecurity experience within corporate and military organizations.
Areas of focus include:
Deliverables include an assessment report and a slide deck presented to executive leadership.
Ransomware is a significant threat. Adversaries first exfiltrate sensitive data for ransom. Next, they deploy ransomware to encrypt files rendering data and systems unavailable. Having backups stored offline is not sufficient. It is necessary to design controls, plan response and exercise in the event of a ransomware outbreak. Accordingly, this service evaluates controls across several areas of focus as detailed above.
