Incident Response Planning

Our approach is to hope for the best but to plan for the worst!

To complement your efforts in mitigating cybersecurity risks, it is key to ensure you are ready to react in case you become a victim of a cyber-attack. Knowing ahead what steps to take will promote effective containment and quick recovery from a cyber-attack and a written plan is a must to ensure readiness and minimize the disruption.

According to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, incident response is one of the five pillars of a sound cybersecurity program and planning is key to ensure optimal readiness and efficient response in case of an attack.

A valid Incident Response Plan identifies all information, actions and contacts needed to respond to a cyber-attack and allow for quick containment and recovery to ensure business continuity and minimize downtime.

Cybersecurity incident response is remarkably similar to fighting a nascent fire where every minute counts and the longer an organization takes to react, the higher the recovery cost will be. Organizations that did not establish a sound incident response plan face various challenges and tend to improvise during the critical phase after an incident which wastes a precious time and increases the potential costs and liability caused by the attack.

We can help your organization establish a realistic plan that identifies all the required responsibilities, contacts, and action plan to help your business minimize negative impacts and ensure business continuity.
