According to a recent threat intelligence report, ransomware has become the most popular attack method, making up 21% of all the security attacks in 2021.

A recent TechRepublic article stated, “Nearly every week in 2021 and early 2022, a prominent organization has been in the media spotlight as their public relations team struggles to explain how they were attacked…” Last week, the President of Costa Rica declared a National Emergency due to an attack by the Russian-speaking Conti group.  Sadly, ransomware attacks are becoming more frequent and costly.

To help organizations prepare for and reduce successful ransomware attacks, NIST published the Cybersecurity Framework Profile for Ransomware Risk Management in February 2022. The Ransomware Profile maps security objectives from the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to security capabilities and measures that specifically support preventing, responding to, and recovering from ransomware events.

Two whitepapers are now available. The first paper was published by ESG Principal Analyst Dave Gruber. It provides an overview of the NIST Framework. The second paper was published by I-Lung Kao, BigFix Product Manager. His paper describes how BigFix supports the implementation of the Ransomware Risk Profile published by NIST.


There is also a related webinar led by ESG’s Dave Gruber and BigFix’s Bret Lenmark discussing the NIST Framework and the new Risk Management profile. It is available to watch now.
