Security incidents can occur at any time with little or no warning. In the current threat landscape, you know it is not a matter of when but rather if you will have to deal with a cybersecurity incident in your organisation.
What are the costs of a breach?
A security incident may result in costly consequences if it isn’t properly managed and contained by a plan.
In most cases, organisations experience expensive downtime, where work-arounds and slowdowns drive up management and production costs and deadlines are blown out.
In addition to this, the damage to your organisation’s reputation can set you back years with clients and potential new contracts.
The risk of failure to meet your compliance requirements only adds to the situation, compounding layers of stress on senior executives, IT leaders and the security team.
How can the costs be avoided?
An Incident Response Plan that is documented, tested and communicated offers you the best chance to tame the chaos that follows a breach.
A properly formulated plan takes the ambiguity out of the situation, and delegates the raft of important tasks to the right people to get your business back on its feet as quickly as possible.
