NCCoE Releases Two Final Data Integrity Practice Guides


The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) released two final practice guides:

  1. SP 1800-25: Identifying and Protecting Assets Against Ransomware and Other Destructive Events
  2. SP 1800-26: Detecting and Responding to Ransomware and Other Destructive Events

Ransomware, malware, insider threats, and even honest user mistakes present ongoing threats to organizations. All types of data are potential targets of data corruption, modification, and destruction.

Formulating a defence against these threats requires thorough knowledge of the assets within the enterprise and protection of these assets against data corruption and destruction. Furthermore, quick, accurate, and thorough detection and response to a loss of data integrity can save an organization time, money, and headaches.

As detailed in these two practice guides, the Data Security team built example solutions to address these data integrity challenges.
