CISA Launches New Ransomware Campaign

Ransomware is an increasing threat to public and private networks. To 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.

As part of the campaign, CISA also unveiled a  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 their recently-published  ransomware guide 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.

The GCCA encourages all members to take appropriate measures to defend themselves and their clients against cybersecurity threats.
