Ransomware attacks are increasing in frequency and sophistication. They can have serious consequences on business continuity or even endanger the survival of the targeted organisation.
In order to address this unprecedented situation and within the framework of a governmental initiative, the ANSSI, in partnership with the DACG, publishes the guide Ransomware attacks, all concerned – How to prevent them and respond to an incident. Very practical, the guide is aimed in particular at general and IT managers, in the private sector and in local authorities.
This guide to good preventive and reactive practices in the face of ransomware has benefited from the contributions and experience of several actors: the cybermalveillance.gouv.fr system, the Brigade de lutte contre la cybercriminalité (BL2C), the French Data Protection Authority (Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés, CNIL) and the Direction centrale de la Police judiciaire (DCPJ). It is enriched by the testimonies of three victim organisations that contribute significantly to the awareness of the risk: the M6 Group, the Rouen University Hospital Centre and Fleury Michon.
