Organisations should assume that sooner or later they will be confronted with a ransomware attack. The main question is when. Preparation is key.

This is a guide about urgent actions to take when a ransomware has hit your company.

Preparation is key whenever dealing with a ransomware attack. The primary goal is to make sure organisations are prepared and don’t need to improvise once a disaster strikes, which will cause additional mistakes that may result in losing even more data.
Preparation includes making sure which teams you need (technical, crisis, communications, …) and how these people can be efficiently reached. While preparing (i.e. your playbook is available, you have put it to the test with an exercise), make sure this also includes a process to keep everything up-to-date.
