An analysis of data breaches has shown that organizations who have a plan and regularly test it are able to significantly reduce the impact and cost of a data breach. On average these two items alone will reduce the cost by over $1,000,000.
OUR INCIDENT PREPAREDNESS STRATEGY
Incident Response Planning and Incident Response Plan Testing put you one step ahead of an attack or incident. It is the corporate, documented plan for how your organization will respond to a data breach or cyberattack, at both the operational and technical level. Every industry’s Incident Response Plan is different, considering various vendors, third-party vendors, and customers that would be affected by, or potentially the culprit of, compromised data.
Your incident response plan will outline clear steps for what your employees and vendors need to know immediately following a breach, and will clearly explain how to ensure operational continuity and involve legal counsel in the right way. In the event of a breach, a well-documented and tested response plan can be a mitigating factor for compliance, regulatory or legal costs that may result. With a plan in place, you can have the peace of mind that comes with being proactive, as well as the reassurance that our team is prepared to act quickly if and when an incident arises.
Also included in your plan will be the following tools:
- Security Incident Log and Report Form
- Security Incident Handling Checklist
- Root Cause Analysis Form
- Incident Information Form
- Incident Response Team Members List
- Incident Response Process Flow
- The First 24 Hours – Data Breach Resolution Checklist
