Many sectors, particularly those considered part of critical infrastructure, are mandated to maintain a cyber incident response plan. Dewpoint has created a template to guide you in creating a plan and additional considerations organizations should take into account while writing a plan to address cyber incidents after they occur.
The worldwide increase in cyber attacks have forced organizations to respond to threats quickly and effectively. An incident response plan is a critical component in your ability to take the necessary actions to respond to data breaches efficiently. The experts at Dewpoint have designed a template, enabling you to create a robust plan and respond appropriately.
In the template you’ll find:
Preparation—one of the essential factors of a response plan is knowing how to use it once it is in place. Knowing how to respond to an incident BEFORE it occurs can save valuable time and effort in the long run.
Identification—identify whether or not an incident has occurred. If one has occurred, the response team can take the appropriate actions.
Containment—involves limiting the scope and magnitude of an incident. Because so many incidents currently involve malicious code, incidents can spread rapidly. This can cause massive destruction and loss of information. As soon as an incident is recognized, immediately begin working on containment.
Eradication—removing the cause of the incident can be a complex process. It can involve virus removal, a conviction of perpetrators, or dismissing employees.
Recovery—restoring a system to its regular business status is essential. Once a restore has been performed, it is also important to verify that the restore operation was successful and that the system is back to its normal condition.
Follow-up/Lessons Learned—some incidents require considerable time and effort. Often once the incident appears to be terminated, there is little interest in devoting any more effort to the incident. Performing a follow-up activity is, however, one of the most critical steps in the response procedure. This follow-up can support any efforts to prosecute those who have broken the law. It may include changing company policies that need to be narrowed down or altered altogether.
