"The consequence is that in many cases, the victim may not even be able to view the ransom note, let alone attempt to comply with any ransom demands," Interesting. What would be the purpose of attach in that case I wonder.

Re: Pending Review
Second the off-site backup. Datto Box (cloud) might be one place to start. We do a "fire drill" every year - stress test UPS's, Restore servers from the cloud, restore desktops, restore NAS's Kill the power to the building to insure that the on-site generator kicks in and the auto cut-over operates nominally.

Desktops are backed up concurrently with timestamped histories

Same with servers.

It all goes out to the cloud.

We're a tiny little outfit. Others should try and do at least these things. Especially larger organizations.

I hope you all land on your feed at the firm. Good luck.

More Definitive Security Required
Additionally, for critical industrial infrastructure we are finding success with a more effective application process and filesystem monitoring in conjunction with fileless attack protection and a full-scale memory defense.

Re: Pending Review
Disaster Recovery plan.  Business continuity.  Your six points do not address this one.  After September 11, and I am a survivor of the south tower so I know something of the subject, my manager became a certified expert in this area.  It is crucial that IT departments have a plan, test it and update it every six months.  It is crucial to have offsite, rotating backup media.  It is crucial to consider that at 2:30 am working on a data center restoration is a mental nightmare.  TEST the plan ensures that staff knows what they ARE doing.  Our data tapes for Aon went offsite on September 10 and thus we had our portion of the network up FAR faster than Risk services.  They were months recovering data.  Now the destruct of a data center is AS bad as ransomware if not worse if not addressed.  So once again plans gone bad and rebuild of everything seems the only process known.  I have said this a thousand times here. HAVE A PLAN, TEST AND UPDATE.
