The US National Security Agency (NSA) has published an updated guide to assist organizations with protecting against ransomware attacks.

The #StopRansomware Guide Cybersecurity Information Sheet (CSI) has been updated to include additional best practices and recommendations based on operational insight from CISA, MS-ISAC, NSA, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Additional guidance includes recommendations for preventing common initial infection vectors, cloud backups, and zero trust architecture (ZTA). These recommended practices align with the Cross-Sector Cybersecurity Performance Goals (CPGs) developed by CISA and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The CSI also expands the ransomware response checklist to include threat hunting tips for detection and analysis.
