Cyber Blackmail Incident Reponse Playbook
This download includes the 6clicks Incident Response playbook for Cyber Blackmail
The purpose of a Cyber Security Playbook, or Security Playbook, is to provide all members of an organisation with a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities regarding cybersecurity – before, during and after a security incident.
Cyber blackmail occurs when cybercriminals breach a private network, steal valuable data and hold the information hostage. In 2017, hackers shared unreleased episodes of the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black when the streaming company did not pay the blackmailer. That same year, a cyber extortionist threatened to release unaired episodes of Game of Thrones if HBO did not pay $5.5 million in bitcoin.
Remember: If you face an incident, follow IRM, take notes, and do not panic. Contact your CERT immediately if needed.
6 steps are defined to handle security Incidents:
- Preparation: get ready to handle the incident
- Identification: detect the incident
- Containment: limit the impact of the incident
- Remediation: remove the threat
- Recovery: recover to a normal stage
- Aftermath: draw up and improve the process
