New #StopRansomware Guide

11147225465?profile=RESIZE_400xOn 23 May 2023, US authorities in CISA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) published an updated version of the #StopRansomware Guide.  Ransomware actors have accelerated their tactics and techniques since its initial release in 2020 and this guide will assist in helping cyber prevention. The update incorporates lessons learned from the past two years and includes additional recommended actions, resources, and tools to maximize its relevancy and effectiveness and to further help reduce the prevalence and impacts of ransomware.[1]

This guide was developed through the US Joint Ransomware Task Force (JRTF).

The JRTF, co-chaired by CISA and FBI, is an interagency, collaborative effort to combat the growing threat of ransomware attacks.  The JRTF was launched in response to a series of high[1]profile ransomware attacks on US critical infrastructure and government agencies.


• Coordinates and streamlines the US Government's response to ransomware attacks and facilitates information sharing and collaboration between government agencies and private sector partners.

• Ensures operational coordination for activities such as developing and sharing best practices for preventing and responding to ransomware attacks, conducting joint investigations and operations against ransomware threat actors, and providing guidance and resources to organizations that have been victimized by ransomware.

• Represents a significant step forward in enabling unity of effort across the US Government's efforts to address the growing threat of ransomware attacks.

The #StopRansomware Guide[2] serves as a one-stop resource to help organizations reduce the risk of ransomware incidents through best practices to detect, prevent, respond, and recover, including step-by-step approaches to address potential attacks. The authoring organizations recommend that entities review this joint guide to prepare and protect their facilities, personnel, and customers from the impacts of ransomware and data exfiltration.
