The US NIST has published two guides to help organizations manage and respond to ransomware threats.
The two documents are:
- The Ransomware Risk Management: A Cybersecurity Framework Profile (NISTIR 8374): this incorporates feedback from earlier drafts and is based on the broader NIST Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.1. NIST says that it can be used as a guide to manage the risk of ransomware events - which includes helping to gauge an organization's level of readiness to counter ransomware threats and to deal with the potential consequences of events.
- Getting Started with Cybersecurity Risk Management: Ransomware: this is designed to enable organizations to make a quick start on managing ransomware risks.
