The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently released a set of new guidelines to help organizations better protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.
The first guide is on data integrity and protection is a guide to help organizations identify and protect IT assets from data integrity attacks, including ransomware. This draft includes a technical blueprint for action items, a guide to commercially available technologies that develop more robust security controls for a network, as well as a how-to guide for implementing best practices.
