Why Do Organisations Need Cyber Incident Response Plans? You can’t defend against all security risks. Cyber incidents and security breaches will occur. Organisations need to be cyber resilient by being able to respond to and recover from incidents as quickly as possible. Incident response plans are also needed to meet certain standards such as ISO 27001.

When you suffer a security incident, your objectives are to:

Identify, contain and report the damage to the relevant parties
Mitigate any further damage to systems
Resume normal operations as quickly as possible

Incident Response FAQs

What is an Incident Response Plan (IRP)?

A Cyber Incident Response Plan refers to a collection of instructions and documents, such as policies and procedures, set out by an organisation to ensure a team responds effectively and recovers from a cyber incident with as little disruption as possible.

Does our organisation need a cyber Incident Response Plan?

In a word, yes. All organisations will suffer from a cyber incident at some stage, whether large or small. As our interconnectedness grows in the digital world, threat actors are becoming more sophisticated in their attack techniques and so the number of data breaches will inevitably rise.

As such, your Incident Response Plan should not be an afterthought. In fact, it should be one of your very first thoughts. It is important you have a plan in place to ensure that your Incident Response Team has a set of clear instructions and processes to follow and rehearse for when a cyber incident occurs.

How do we start an Incident Response Plan?

A good starting point should be your security incident management policy. The policy should make it clear how to identify a security incident and who to report it to. From there, it should include processes, such as investigation techniques and set out timelines. It should also include who is responsible for investigating the incident, and who to report their feedback to.

Your incident response policy should also include any steps your organisation should take to notify the ICO (or other reporting authority depending on your location). The policy should then include a detailed IRP which will apply as soon as the decision is taken to invoke it.

What should our Incident Response Plan include?

A good Cyber Incident Response Plan should include a list of the roles and responsibilities of your Incident Response Team. It should also include a detailed plan of how to escalate a report and define who is to take responsibility for the communication internally and externally.

It’s important to note that the IRP is a business document, not a technical document (this should be a separate document that will be cross-referenced in the plan and vice versa). The IRP should be in clear and easy-to-understand language for non-technical members of a response team.

The plan should also have a list of contacts such as the IT specialists and relevant authorities.

What is an Incident Response Team?

An Incident Response Team is a team of people who handle responses to cyber security incidents. The team is not just made up of IT roles, it should include members of the HR team, legal and communications departments.

What roles should an incident response team include?

  • Team leader
  • Communications
  • Lead investigator
  • Analysts
  • Legal
  • Finance

In smaller organisations, the core team should be made up of internal employees who take these duties on as part of their day-to-day roles. Many companies, however, choose to outsource elements of their incident response to a team of cyber security experts, like Evalian.

What do cyber incident responders do?

The role of the incident response team is to respond to, and prevent cyber security threats in a planned and coordinated manner. This team is also the team that will create and implement an effective Cyber Incident Response Plan. They should also take on the role of communicating to the wider team on how to respond and what steps to take should a cyber incident occur.
