You will need to create a Wwise Event for entering and exiting your menu.  For example, this could be: Menu_Enter and  Menu_Exit.

This enter event will Pause objects in your project.  You can either pause the objects directly, a parent or a bus.

The exit event will Resume the same objects.

You will need to post those events in the game engine.

I just wanted to add to this that CryEngine also has default required events in the Audio Controls Browser named pause_all and resume_all. Depending on which version of CE you have, it may be in g_requiredevents folder in the ACB. You can link them to your Wwise Menu_Enter and Menu_Exit events listed on the right hand side.
