The most effective way to prepare for a data breach or security event impacting your organization is to develop an incident response plan (IRP). An IRP, or a Cybersecurity Incident Response Plan (CIRP), is the main component of a business continuity plan that can mitigate the impact of a cybersecurity event.
Having an incident response plan is critical, especially for organizations handling sensitive data. Regulations, customers, and compliance requirements may also require organizations to have an IRP plan with evidence that a table-top exercise or mock incident scenario was successfully performed.
If you are looking for an IRP developed as part of your BCP or any other requirements, we can help.
