Enfuse 2018

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

NCCoE Deputy Director Tim Mcbride will present "Recover Quickly & Safely from Ransomware" at the Enfuse 2018 Conference at 8am on May 22. Ransomware, malware, and malicious insiders constantly jeopardize data integrity for any organization regardless of size or industry. These attacks can have consequences that not only impact the data, but can be costly for operations and brand reputation. Stemming from discussions that began with the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) and their Destructive Malware Task Force, we learned that developing a methodology to recover from these events can be difficult for most organizations. This session will discuss how industry experts and technology collaborators worked with the NCCoE to develop practical cybersecurity guidance on recovering from destructive malware and ransomware. This session will highlight the recently released NIST Special Publication 1800-11, Data Integrity: Recovering from Ransomware and Other Destructive Events.
