Evaluating Readiness for Ransomware Attacks

To assess if your organization is prepared to shut down ransomware attacks, we’ve assembled questions to help you evaluate your readiness level.

Our interactive, downloadable self-assessment focuses on four key areas: vulnerability discovery, asset management, detection and response improvement, team cohesion.

A quick look at some of the questions we include:

  • When was the last time you ran internal and external penetration tests?
  • What assets do you anticipate are the most at risk of a ransomware attack?
  • When was the last time you tested your ability to detect specific TTPs?
  • What specific steps you’ll take once ransomware is detected in your environment?
