Different scales
It is essential to know that attacks do not often target finances alone. Sometimes their intention is just to destroy or at least slow down operations. This is basically the reason why we need to stop any potential attacks regardless of their individual scale before they can even hit.

Re: Pending Review
Testing a plan has a real purpose beyond finding out what works and does not work.  These are critical of course but i will guarantee you that making such discoveries at 2:30 AM when nobody is thinking is FAR harder than finding out in the afternoon under a planned environment.  I'm not awake at that hour.  Nobody is.  And when you have real work to do make sure it is a known variable.  Because if it is not tested, then mistakes will happen and a recovery plan can destroy even more material than intended.   Or make it impossible even to recover.  At 2:30 am I am on a serious coffee burn!!!!

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. Yes. Testing the plan is important. Things do not go the way planned.

Re: More Definitive Security Required
fileless attack protection and a full-scale memory defense. It sounds like fileless attacks are becoming common. Good point.

Re: Pending Review
I have said this a thousand times here. HAVE A PLAN, TEST AND UPDATE. That makes sense. Another important is to keep it updated.

TEST the plan ensures that staff knows what they ARE doing This is a good advice. If it does not work when you need it it is too late.

Disaster Recovery plan. Business continuity. Your six points do not address this one. BC should play role in all incidents, most organizations do not have one unfortunately.

AD
An example is where an attacker might have access to the Active Directory infrastructure Once you ave AD access you can even deploy ransomware to other part of the network.

Copy files
"indicates the actors simply manually copy files from computer to computer," They would need network interface for that to work.

re-imaging
The goal is "to further isolate the affected computer and to complicate recovery, necessitating direct local intervention." This beings up image to my mind. Less about recovery more about re-imaging.
