An Incident Response plan helps ensure an effective cleanup and recovery when you discover a cybersecurity incident, which will protect an organization’s data, reputation, and resources. A systematic strategy and a dedicated team are needed to handle the incident and decrease the loss and cost of recovery.
We recommend annual assessments of critical assets with a higher impact and likelihood of risks. They typically cover all aspects of a company, from IT to operations to HR and accounting. Our team performs a deep-dive assessment, usually within six weeks, walking through the phases outlined below:
Cyber incidents are not just technology problems – they’re business problems. The sooner you can mitigate an attack, the less harm it will have on your business. However, merely having an IR plan isn’t enough; our Cyber Incident Response Team ( CIRT) needs to run practice scenarios to prepare for the real thing adequately. Additionally, they are time-sensitive. The GDPR, for example, requires that companies report data security incidents within 72 hours of discovery. These notification laws are becoming more prevalent, and that trend is likely to continue.
SANS published their Incident Handler’s Handbook awhile back, and it remains the standard for IR plans. It’s a six-step process that organizations can use to build a policy around.
Preparation is the key to developing an IR plan:
First, establish policies and procedures for incident response management.
Communication Guidelines: Create communication criteria and guidelines to enable seamless communication during and after an incident.
Incorporate Threat Intelligence Feeds: Perform ongoing collection, analysis, and synchronization of your threat intelligence feeds.
Conduct Cyber-Hunting Exercises: Conduct threat hunting exercises to find incidents occurring within your environment. This enables a more proactive incident response.
Assess Your Threat Detection Capability: Assess your current threat detection capability and update risk assessment and improvement programs.
Monitor network systems, detect deviations from standard operations, and see if they represent actual security incidents. When discovering an incident, be sure to:
Containment is two-fold. The two types of containment include the short-term and long-term.
Establish a process to restore all of the affected systems. Starting with reimaging all systems involved in the incident and removing any security incident traces.
Find how to bring all operations back into full production after confirming that they are clean and clear of any suspiciousness that could lead to a new security event.
With the incident behind you, it’s time to discuss a strategy for future prevention. Review the incident’s documentation to prevent future attacks and update the plan based on feedback and identify any deficiencies.
