CISA Releases Ransomware Protection Capability Assessment Tool

Recently, CISA (U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) released a ransomware protection capability assessment tool – CSET (Cyber ​​Security Evaluation Tool), which can help enterprises test their networks against ransomware attacks and recover from ransomware attacks. capabilities and provide suggestions for improvement.

Enterprises can use CSET to assess their ability to build new functional modules in terms of environmental security, software prevention and recovery from ransomware attacks.

Accessible through desktop software, CSET can be applied to information technology (IT) and industrial control system (ICS) networks and helps users evaluate their cybersecurity policies against government and industry recommendations.

“The Ransomware Readiness Assessment (RRA) will help organizations understand their cybersecurity posture in relation to the evolving threat of ransomware,” CSET’s release notes state.

The CISA tool, which asks users to answer a series of questions about its cybersecurity policies, is designed to help companies improve their defenses against ransomware. CSET first focuses on the basics of enterprise security before moving on to intermediate and advanced questions and tutorials.

The purpose of the above practice is to ensure that the enterprise’s network security can be used normally no matter what state it is in, so CISA encourages all enterprises to conduct a ransomware readiness assessment.

“CISA has tailored RRAs for different levels of preparedness for ransomware threats and can be applied to different organizations, regardless of their current cybersecurity maturity,” CISA said.
