- Defining an Incident Response Plan

An Incident Response Plan is how IT professionals are going to minimize damage done by a cyber incident. This plan will have the detailed step-by-step actions your team will take to mitigate and stop the spread of a cyber attack. The plan should be well documented and written down.

- What Should it Include?

  • The incident response plan should cover small incidents all the way up to a large cyber attack incident. 
  • Team members and their roles should be clearly defined within this plan. 
  • Maybe the most important part of creating an incident response plan, would be to rehearse and practice all the scenarios within before there is actually an incident in the workplace. 

- Where to Begin?

The hardest part of creating the plan can be where to begin or how to organize the information. Templates and outlines are available at:
