With security incidents increasing not only in volume, but also in complexity, and – unfortunately – damage, having a solid, reliable incident response plan and process specific to each individual organization seems like a no-brainer. After all, according to Ponemon institute, the average cost of data breach in the U.S. is over $5.4 million. There are a few factors that can posi tively impact this cost, and having an incident response is one of the most significant ones, with potential to decrease it by 15%.

If you have an incident response plan, that’s a great start. But keep in mind that no plan is perfect. Incident response plans require extensive documentation, testing, and validation before they can be called reliable. On top of that, incident response plans go stale over time, and must be refreshed annually, or whenever the organization makes any major changes.

Use the five steps described in this white paper to assess and improve your existing incident response plan – or write a brand new one.
