Ransomware remains one of the most concerning cyber threats in the minds of CEOs and business leaders. Successful ransomware attacks result in immediate financial pain from sudden business disruption before even accounting for the long tail of breach costs, such as forensic investigations, legal fees, and reputational damage. As a result, understanding just how prepared an organization is for a ransomware attack tends to be one of the top asks of CISOs from senior leadership.
With Ransomware Readiness, Bishop Fox’s Red Team applies the latest ransomware-specific threat intelligence around emerging variants, attacker TTPs, and industry-specific nuances to ensure your posture is in line with the current threat landscape. Advanced multi-methodology red team attack emulations give your blue team the opportunity to spar with a skilled partner and test the effectiveness of your threat detection and response operation. Finally, consultants with combined decades of security leadership experience work with you to best present and communicate the status of your organization’s ransomware readiness to an executive audience.

Many ransomware attacks can destroy business operations for companies big and small, either as a temporary costly setback, as a forever black mark against their reputation, or, more often, both. The inconvenient truth is that threat preparation—particularly for high-stakes threats like ransomware— requires a ‘whole of company’ approach.
With ransomware threat actors playing an elaborate game of deception and upping their ante, it’s time to rethink the way we face these adversaries – including taking a stronger offensive security approach.
