Cyber Incidents & Risk: Your Business Continuity Response
“Thankfully, we now live in a world where it is accepted that data breaches happen and organisations are more comfortable disclosing that they have been victim to an attack.
However, with this welcome move away from victim blaming, organisations are now being judged more on how well they manage a breach.”
Brian Honan in Computer Weekly
You may have spent a lot of time and money ensuring that your organisation will never suffer from a security breach, but if we accept that no system is 100% secure, the question becomes not how protected you are, but how prepared you are.
It is good practice to have a Cyber Incident Playbook in place that sets out the steps your organisation should take to prevent, detect, respond and recover from cyber-attacks, but what does a response plan look like? How do you develop one? How do you test it?
“Police Scotland recommended that SEPA and the wider public sector organisations within Scotland should review Cyber Incident Response Plans, ransomware and data loss playbooks and, as an exercise priority, test them against an enterprise-level ransomware and data theft attack”.
