Incident Response Plan 101: How to Build One, Templates and Examples
What is an Incident Response Plan and Why Do You Need One? An incident response plan helps IT staff identify, respond to and recover from cybersecurity incidents. The objective of an incident response plan is to prevent damages like service outage, data loss or theft, and illicit access to organizational systems. The Ponemon Institute’s 2017 Cost of Cyber Crime Study showed that the average organization loses $11.7 million per year due to the damages of cyber attacks. An effective response process can act to significantly reduce these costs. WHO CARRIES OUT THE INCIDENT RESPONSE PLAN? An incident response plan is not complete without a team who can carry it out—the Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT). An incident response team is a group of people—either IT staff with some security training, or full-time security staff in larger organizations—who collect, analyze and act upon information from an incident.
