Mark Hoffman, who we interviewed this past summer for the PreparedEx Podcast, wrote a great article for the International Crisis Management Conference (ICMC), “Ransomware as a Crisis“. In his article, Mark discusses the importance of cyber security in your crisis management program as well as the tool he developed, the Cyber Security Playbook, which walks the Crisis Management Team through the necessary steps to determine how to respond to an attack.
“The Playbook is based on the fact that there are several factors to consider when deciding how to respond to a ransomware attack. Will you pay the ransom? Will you notify law enforcement? Will you inform the public / media? Is there a specific privacy issue that requires notification of whatever privacy commission you report to? Do you need to notify customers? What are the risks to the business or to key employees (executives) associated with the attack? Let’s look at a couple of these questions a little deeper.”
