Cyber security incidents – whether they are triggered accidentally or by the actions of hackers – are an inevitability for almost all organisations. How you respond to them will define your organisation’s ability to minimise damage and return to business as usual as soon as possible. In this guide we will provide a three-phased approach to security incident response readiness.
Your organisation’s ability to respond effectively to cyber security incidents when they occur forms a vital part of its overall cyber security and business continuity posture. Respond well and the damage/impact can be reduced. Respond badly, however, and even the most minor incidents have the potential to cause significant harm to your organisation, your people, and the people you serve.
In this guide we’ll take you through what a security incident response plan is, explain why it’s important, and take you through a three-phased approach to enhancing your security incident response readiness.
