What is a Ransomware Preparedness Assessment?

A ransomware preparedness assessment is a questionnaire-based assessment that addresses best practices for cyber incident planning, identification, management, response, and recovery with a focus on ransomware incidents. The assessment presumes a mindset of assume breach and prepare from there.

Schellman recognizes that you will have needs that are specific and unique to your organization, and we offer a tiered assessment that can help you understand whether you are in fact prepared for a ransomware incident.

Based on your assessment of business unit risk, your appetite for better data points (i.e., validation of responses), and resource accessibility (i.e., personnel availability), you can choose to mix-and-match the level of effort that you’d like to undertake per business unit.
