How you respond to a cyber attack can make or break your company!

Cyberattacks happen every day! Let us help you be prepared with an effective response plan and quick recovery time. 


An Incident Response Plan (IRP) is absolutely essential and should be one of your highest priorities to your overall cybersecurity strategy.

An IRP is a set of written instructions that spell out exactly how your organization will respond to a security incident. It contains specific instructions for different types of incidents and addresses every facet of the business, including each department’s plan of action. It contains detailed instructions about communications and notifications of a breach. It also contains information about how the incident will be investigated.

This plan is vital for mitigating financial and reputation damages, speeding recovery time, and identifying and reducing further risks. The plan should be reviewed and approved by a CISO and updated regularly.

IRP Best Practices

  • Form an Incident Response Team.  These are the people who are responsible for analyzing, categorizing and responding to security incidents. This would include an IR Manager, Security Analyst, and a Threat Researchers.
  • Leadership support is essential to developing and implementing incident responses. These require resources, funding, staff, and time.
  • Legal Counsel can help you understand which data breaches must be reported to regulators and customers and can advise on third-party liability with regard to vendor data breaches.
  • Human Resources personnel can assist with the removal of any insider threats.
  • Public Relations can ensure accurate, consistent and truthful messages are communicated to all regulators, media, customers, and other stakeholders, etc.

Benefits of Having an IRP

  • Get a deep understanding of your current cybersecurity posture.
  • Reduce loss and ensure continuity of your business.
  • Decrease disruption and downtime to your business.
  • A proactive plan makes it easier to see when threats are forthcoming.
  • Reduce investigative costs.
  • Avoid lost time looking, vetting, and contracting investigative agencies. 
  • Improve the confidence of clients and investors.
  • Avoid legal penalties by providing forensic data quickly and efficiently.
  • Put your mind at rest in the event of an incident.
