Message From the White House : What We Urge You To Do To Protect Against The Threat of Ransomware
On 2 June 2021, Anne Neuberger, the Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technology, released a message urging corporate executives and business leaders to ensure all US organizations are practicing safe cybersecurity measures. This is a matter of national security. The link to the White House website is available HERE, and we have summarized the press release below.
The U.S. Government’s Recommended Best Practices for Preventing Ransomware:
- Implement the five best practices from the Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity Executive Order.
- Multifactor authentication
- Endpoint detection and response
- Data encryption (so if it is stolen, it cannot be used by the thief)
- Have a security team ready and willing to make changes, patches, and security upgrades.
- Back up your data and keep a copy encrypted and offline.
- Update and patch systems promptly
- Test your incident response plan – what happens if there is a breach, what do you do?
- Use a 3rd party network penetration tester (also sometimes referred to as an “ethical hacker”) to test your security and ability to defend against a sophisticated attack.
- Segment your networks
