However, even major breaches can be dealt with effectively when the affected organization has a formal incident response plan, making it one of your most important risk management solutions. Here are four key components of every good incident response plan.
Essential #1: Understand the full scope of the breach before responding
Essential #2: Involve your legal team immediately
Essential #3: Ensure you’re communicating effectively and responsibly
Accordingly, it’s important to have a formal post-incident communication plan that lays out explicitly who’s responsible for conveying information, especially to those you’re legally obliged to notify, like anybody whose personal data was compromised.
Essential #4: Have a properly staffed response team
By crafting an effective incident response plan, you can ensure that your company is always prepared to deal with the unexpected and prepare for future cybersecurity concerns.
