  • PROTECT: Create safeguards to ensure the delivery of critical services and business processes to limit or contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity incident or attack.
  • RESPOND: Activate an incident response program within your organization that can help contain the impact of a security (in this case, ransomware) event.  
  • IDENTIFY: Develop an understanding of what cybersecurity risks you need to manage for the scope of your assets, systems, data, people, and capabilities.
  • DETECT: Define continuous ways to monitor your organization and identify potential cybersecurity events or incidents. 
  • RECOVER: Build a cyber resilience program and backup strategy to prepare for how you can restore core systems or assets affected by a security incident.
