According to the Institute for Security and Technology (IST), which is one of the members, the group will assess current responses to ransomware, identify gaps in existing approaches and develop a roadmap “of concrete objectives and actionable milestones for high-level decision-makers.” The task force will commission expert papers to help guide the roadmap.
More details about the Ransomware Task Force will be announced next month, including full membership and leadership. The task force website will be up and running in January too. The coalition is “launching this task force for a two-to-three month sprint,” according to the IST, so the first set of standardized ransomware guidance approved by the group could emerge by the spring.
