The benefits of a comprehensive Incident Response approach

There is no doubt that prevention remains one of the best cures for cyberattacks. However, it is only one part of the puzzle. The tactics used by cyber criminals and threat actors continue to evolve at pace, meaning that cyberattacks remain a real possibility for all organisations. You may not have complete control over whether a cyberattack happens to you, but you can control how your organisation plans for, responds to, and recovers from these events. Here are some ways in which a good response strategy can minimise the impact of a data breach or other cybersecurity incident and help your organisation’s recovery.

  • Reducing operational and financial impact Read more Read less

    In the event of a cyberattack, the speed with which you are able to respond and recover, as well as the impact of the attack, will depend on how prepared you are. Having tried and tested Incident Response, business continuity and crisis management plans in place will ensure that your business can recover quickly with minimal damage and interruption to operations.

  • Complying with regulatory requirements Read more Read less

    Regulations such as GDPR and NISD require organisations to respond within 72 hours of a breach. Planning ahead increases the likelihood of your organisation meeting these requirements, avoiding financial penalties and long-term reputational damage.

    • Table-top exercises and Board briefings. The first time your organisation deals with a crisis should not be a real-world incident. PGI’s table-top exercises provide Boards and leadership teams the opportunity to see if Crisis Management, Business Continuity and Incident Response plans are appropriate for a cyber incident and where there is room for improvement.
    • Technical exercises. How well would your in-house team put an Incident Response plan into action? Our experts can develop and facilitate scenarios to exercise plans and provide staff the opportunity to review efficacy.
    • Full-scale simulations. To ensure the response to an incident is effective, it is vital that the key people across the business know how to work together and that the appropriate plans can be actioned. A full-scale simulation provides an opportunity for both management and technical teams to work side by side.
