A ransomware playbook that prioritizes workflow and accelerates the response to an incident is a key requirement for all computer security incident response teams and security operations centers.

DFLabs, the leader in Security Automation and Orchestration Technology, announced today the release of a free playbook for organizations to investigate and respond to WannaCry ransomware incidents.

The complimentary six-page playbook to apply against WannaCry provides the steps necessary to triage, identify and respond to this new threat with these top five actions: 1. Detection/Analysis, 2. Containment, 3. Remediation, 4. Recovery and 5. Post-Incident Management.

Recent research from Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), titled “Next Generation Cybersecurity Analytics and Operations Survey,” commissioned by DFLabs and other technology vendors, shows that spending time addressing high priority/emergency issues and not enough time on strategy and process improvements is second biggest challenge for organizations regarding security and analytics operations.

“Given the global rise and rapid spread of ransomware targeting healthcare and other organizations of all sizes and sectors, a ransomware playbook that prioritizes workflow and accelerates the response to an incident is a key requirement for all computer security incident response teams and security operations centers,” said Dario Forte, CEO, DFLabs.

The playbook can be implemented manually or automated using a security automation and orchestration tool. When applied using a security automation and orchestration platform such as DFLabs' IncMan™ the playbook can reduce the reaction time to security breaches up to 80%.
