Data Breach Security From A To Z

Incident Response Plan

A good incident response plan will help reduce the time it takes for threat detection, threat containment and system restoration. Verizon investigators say speed and execution are equally critical. Acting quickly without conducting full incident mitigation can result in mistakes and increase the costs of a breach. Having an incident response plan and conducting thorough training reviews help organizations be prepared. An incident response plan can help organizations anticipate a potential breach, identify individuals who should be part of a response team and ensure that a communications plan is in place when a problem happens. It also provides a structure, identifying the roles and responsibilities of people throughout the incident process. A thorough incident response plan should be revisited often and carefully assessed and adjusted when corporate systems and policies change.
