ransomware resilience as a service

Assess, build, and maintain resilience against ransomware

DEFINITION

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malware that locks and encrypts a victim’s data, files, devices or systems, rendering them inaccessible and unusable until the attacker receives a ransom payment. Attacks have evolved to target backups and exfiltrate data to be leveraged for double extortions and sold on the dark web.

GET IN – SPREAD – PROFIT

How Ransomware works?

Although ransomware methods and tactics have grown increasingly sophisticated in recent years, the typical attack still follows a consistent series of steps:

  1. Malware distribution and infection.
  2. Command and control.
  3. Discovery and lateral movement.
  4. File encryption and data theft.
  5. Extorsion.

Why organizations stuck paying for ransom?

DON’T GET STUCK PAYING FOR RANSOM

When companies fail to determine their RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective) properly, some feel as if they have no other choice but to pay the ransom. Yet, preparing and bypassing such attacks is not impossible. All of these issues can be resolved with specific and detail-oriented action plans in place for how to handle such emergencies.

"Deciding whether to pay the ransom is a difficult decision and one that must be made carefully at the board level, not by security and risk leaders"

BACKUPS DON’T ALWAYS WORK

Every organization should include backup as part of their ransomware response. It should not, however, be the sole component of that response. Backup is the recovery point of last resort. It is what you turn to when everything else has gone wrong. The right infrastructure software solution can ensure that “everything going wrong” is rare. Backups can’s be solely depended on for the following examples:

  • Corrupt
  • Infected
  • RPO and RTO don’t meet requirements

CYBER INSURANCE NOT THE ANSWER

The insurance industry recognizes the importance of this cyber risk, and most policies cover ransomware including ransom demand amounts. Also, many insurers, also cover costs required to respond to the ransomware event — including digital forensics, costs to restore and recover lost assets, and even lost income due to business interruption. However, relying on insurance to mitigate the risk of ransomware doesn’t work.

SOPHOS  “Cyber Insurance Adoption: The Critical Role of Frontline Cyber Defense” study revealed that ransomware victims with standalone cyber insurance policies are almost four times more likely to pay the ransom to recover encrypted data than those without cyber coverage. 58% of organizations with a standalone cyber insurance policy and had data encrypted in a ransomware attack last year paid the ransom to get their data back. In comparison, 36% of those with cyber as part of a broader insurance policy paid the ransom and 15% of those without cyber insurance.

What is Ransomware Resilience as a Service?

Organizations of all sizes and across industries continue to be challenged with managing the risk and impacts of ransomware attacks. Developing a methodical approach to strategize, plan, prevent, detect, respond, recover, and report ransomware attacks is critical to effectively mitigate the inherent risks and impacts posed by ransomware. One of the greatest challenges ransomware attacks present is the wide range of possible attackers because the attacker can be anyone using any of the many different attack vectors.

Satius Security’s approach ensures the organization’s Technology, Process, and People’s readiness and capacity to disrupt the attack kill chain at every stage.

ASSESS & MEASURE RESILIENCE

Clear insight on where you stand with metrics & reports

We start with a complete assessment of your people, processes, and technology’s readiness for ransomware threat. The assessments will produce metrics and detailed reports to guide us during the process of building resilience maturity. Assessments include:

breach and attack simulation with MITRE ATT&CK

BUILD & IMPROVE RESILIENCE

Close gaps, build, and improve resilience maturity

This engagement builds on the results obtained from the initial assessment and the gap analysis performed. the process with build the necessary capacity to Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover from ransomware attack. This will include:

  • Review attack vectors
  • Identify countermeasures
  • Review Security Incident Management Plan
  • Run Tabletop Test (IT)

  • Document Workflow and Run-book

  • Run Tabletop Test (Leadership)

  • Prioritize resilience initiatives

MAINTAIN RESILIENCE

Prevents drifting of people, processes, and technologies from your goals

Our Ransomware Resilience as a Service is a program aimed to maintain resilience through a continuous cycle of assessment, capacity building, and improvement. 

  • Process Change Management
  • Continuous Controls Validation
  • Routine Phishing Simulation

Resilience as a service vs. security as usual

Satius Vs. Others - what's the difference?

Satius’s Ransomware Resilience as a service can help organizations build a baseline security infrastructure focused on ransomware threat by addressing the entire attack cycle from People, Process, and Technology perspectives. Other provides will tend to address this threat from a generalized approach covering some or even most mitigations from ad-hoc rather than a holistic and continuous approach.
