CISA Launches New Ransomware Campaign
Department of Homeland Security – Ransomware is a constantly evolving and increasing threat to both public and private networks. To help defend against and respond to ransomware attacks, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has launched its Reduce the Risk of Ransomware Campaign. The campaign is a focused and sustained effort designed to raise awareness of important behaviors and actions about how organizations can help prevent ransomware attacks, protect organizational data in case it gets compromised, and properly respond to an attack. The campaign provides public and private sector organizations with the necessary information, tools, and resources, including incident response services and network assessment capabilities, that are needed to help lessen the risks and threats from ransomware.

As part of the Reduce the Risk of Ransomware Campaign, CISA also recently unveiled its new ransomware webpage, which includes links to no-cost tools available for organizations and individuals, as well as targeted resources for the K-12 community. The webpage also includes CISA’s recently-published ransomware guide which is released in partnership with the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). The guide is a comprehensive, customer-centered resource featuring best practices and ways to prevent, protect, detect, and respond to ransomware attacks.
