7 Reasons To Have a Tested Incident Response Plan Ready

Incident response plans are not voluntary any longer given the rising risk of being hit by a cyberattack, ransomware or suffering a breach.⠀

When a cyber incident happens having an organized actionable approach with a step by step guide to dealing with an incident or breach is crucial.

Too many organizations are caught without a plan and chaos ensues and it results in greater damage and can even result in firings.

It is important to be prepared and to meet your due-care and fiduciary responsibilities by taking reasonable measures or alert leadership to the shortcomings. Be sure and document it if you choose the later.
