New NIST guidance focuses on recovering from ransomware attacks

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), a part of the US NIST, partnered with Tripwire to develop NIST SP 1800-11 ‘Data Integrity: Recovering from Ransomware and Other Destructive Events’.

The draft guide explores methods that organizations can use to effectively recover from a data corruption event in various information technology enterprise environments. The guide also maps security characteristics to standards, guidance, and best practices from NIST and other standards organizations. 

The guide can help businesses recover from a detected cybersecurity event by showing how commercially available technologies can be integrated with existing tools and IT system infrastructure.

The draft is available for download from the NCCoE website and feedback is encouraged.
