Based on data from recent actor tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), they report that ransomware attacks are at their highest during weekends and holidays – times when offices are usually closed.
The FBI and CISA have no evidence that indicates a ransomware attack will happen during the upcoming Labor Day holiday, but they do encourage organizations to thoroughly check their current cybersecurity stance and implement ‘best practice’ recommendations to counter any risks posed by cyberthreats in general, and by ransomware attacks in particular.
To prevent falling prey to such an attack, It’s crucial to check and reinforce network defense practices leading up to holidays and weekends.
Stay safer with these steps:
- Be proactive and continuously monitor the security status during holidays and weekends.
- Appoint dedicated IT security employees to be available to take immediate action in case there is a ransomware attack.
- Implement a set of ‘network best practices’ to reduce risks.
