  1. Get people to safety by following the floor warden's information and get out if needed
    If there are no floor wardens, YOU take the initiative and alert people. Vacate the premises if you suspect danger.
    Err on the side of caution. Nobody ever got fired over keeping people safe.
  2. Get people to safety (yes! double check this)
  3. Check what is happening
  4. Stop the bleeding
  5. Check what you broke while stopping the bleeding
  6. Check if you need to go into DR mode
  7. Go into DR mode if that is the fastest way to restore the service
  8. Only now start to look deeper

Notice what is missing in this list?

  • WHY did this happen?
  • WHO did what

During the first reactions to an event, stick to the facts of what is happening and the symptoms. If the symptoms are bad, attend to people first, no matter the financial losses occurring.
Remember that financial losses are typically insured. Human life is not. Only loss of income and ability to pay is insured! Not the person's life.

The WHY, HOW, WHO and other root cause questions are asked in the aftermath of the incident and after you have stabilized the situation.
In ITIL terms, those are Problem Management and Root Cause Analysis stage questions.

The challenge you face with incident management within your company

Ransomware Cyber Attack. The real Disaster Recovery Scenario

Cyber-ransomware criminals need to make sure that you cannot simply recover your encrypted data via your backups. They must make it look like paying is your only option. And if you do not have a strategy that takes this into account, unfortunately, you may be up the creek without a paddle. because how do they make their case? Bylooking for ways to infect your backups, way before you find out you have been compromised. 

That means your standard disaster recovery scenarios provide insufficient protection against this type of event. You need to think beyond DRP and give consideration to what John Beattie and Michael Shandrowski call "Cyber Incident Recovery Risk management" (CIR-RM).
