While you undoubtedly have security measures in place to protect your business, no matter how good they are, data breaches can still occur. However, while you can’t control how or when an incident happens, you can take charge of how your business responds. By implementing a well prepared and tested response plan, you can reduce the impact of a breach and ensure your business is back up and running as quickly as possible. Our incident response service can guide you through the process, giving you the confidence that you’ll know just what to do if disaster strikes. 

The Risk of a Cyberattack

The variety and sophistication of cyberattacks are greater than ever before. Your business has to defend against phishing attacks and ransomware, protect data on-premise and in the cloud and ensure employees are educated and on-guard at all times. With constantly evolving threats trying to evade defences, it’s no wonder many are successful. The fact is that each year almost two-thirds of businesses have one or more endpoints successfully compromised. If it happens to your business, how you respond will make all the difference.

The Information You Need

When it comes to incident response planning, knowledge is power. As part of our planning service, we’ll help you to scope out the key assets that need to be protected in your business and will support you in assessing different levels of risk so that you are better placed to prioritise actions. We’ll also review the processes you have in place to detect and report incidents so that you are always the first to know if there is a risk of a breach.

Planning Your Response

Our experienced team of consultants can help your business develop a framework to deal with security incidents in a consistent and effective way. Our incident response planning service involves four key steps:

  • Assess risk - when an incident occurs, you need to be able to quickly assess the extent of damage and the severity of the incident and prioritise actions accordingly.
  • Minimise damage - to reduce the impact of a security incident, you need to remove the root cause, isolate at-risk areas, and restore systems as quickly as possible.
  • Communicate plan - to ensure everyone takes the necessary actions, clear consistent messaging is needed across defined channels.
  • Learn lessons - after an incident takes place, it should be recorded and analysed to help your business learn and reduce future risk.
