Cyber Incident Response Plan

No one is immune to getting hacked. Plan ahead to minimize recovery time and costs.

We help business leaders like you manage the financial and reputational risks that follow a successful cyberattack by helping them create a cyber incident response plan. An incident response plan is a written document that guides an organization before, during, and after a cybersecurity incident to ensure they recover efficiently from the attack.

  • We help SMOs like yours create cyber incident response plans

  • A cyber incident response plan minimizes recovery time, financial loss, and reputational damage that follow a successful cyberattack

  • A cyberattack occurs every 39 seconds, and 43% of these attacks target small businesses

The time to plan the response to a cyberattack is not during the incident. Research from the University of Georgia shows that a cyberattack occurs every 39 seconds, and 43% of these attacks target small businesses. The cost of a cyberattack might not just an SMO some money—it might also cost them their entire business due to reputational damage and financial loss.

Why does my organization need a cyber incident response plan?

Responding timely to a cyberattack can prevent the attack from spreading through your organization and causing more damage. A cyber incident response plan provides a step-by-step roadmap that identifies activities and authority necessary to quickly mitigate the damage caused by a cyberattack.

An organization’s cyber incident response plan prevents a situation where the information technology (IT) personnel notice an incident but must wait to receive permission from someone in senior leadership before they begin to shut down systems. Having a documented and tested plan in place ahead of an attack eliminates the time required to track down a senior decision-maker. A response plan could therefore end up saving the business thousands to millions of dollars in recovery costs, depending on the severity of the attack.
