How quickly could your organisation recover if your IT systems were compromised?

August 17, 2020

Major cyber attacks continue to impact businesses and their customers, with the May 2021 breach of the personal information of 4.5 million Indian Air passengers a case in point. Given the heavy reliance on IT and current working from home arrangements, the following questions are critical for every organisation’s planning, response and recovery:

IT Incident Response Plans

An IT Incident Response Plan enables the timely, consistent, and appropriate response to suspected and confirmed security incidents, in order to protect information and assets and minimise harm to individuals / entities that may be affected by the incident. 

Such plans are also intended to promote consistency in the way that an organisation prepares for and responds to a security incident, by documenting roles and responsibilities, risk assessment and escalation procedures, and notification requirements.

Learn more about IT Incident Response Plans and their benefits.

Simulation Testing

Like Business Continuity Plans, IT Incident Response Plans should also be regularly tested to ensure that all key stakeholders (usually within the IT team) understand exactly what to do, when to do it, and how take appropriate action.

Simulation testing also increases security situational awareness, facilitates team discussion regarding appropriate incident responses, and identifies gaps and issues in existing IT Incident Response Plans.
