What’s New in Incident Response

As threats evolve, so must your plans to respond to them…


A Jolley|Hadaway Article.


ServIcons_ITAudit_01There have been a number of changes to the threat landscape organizations face in recent years, and if your organization’s plans to respond to those threats haven’t changed with them you may be wondering how to get started. From ransomware to the Cybersecurity Assessment Tool, there are a number of things to catch up on.

Ransomware, which has become a leading threat facing both individuals and organizations alike, has caused changes in the response procedure for viruses. Because such attacks demand payment, management is now frequently being called in as well to debate the cost of ransom payments versus downtime while backups are restored. The FFIEC’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool has also prompted changes in incident response as organizations try to stay ahead of changing regulations and guidance.

If you’re one of those people wondering where to get started look no further because we’ve recently made a number of updates to our incident response program boilerplate documents and are offering them to you for free through our online store.

Also for those concerned, the IBA is offering a Responding to Cybersecurity Incidents workshop that will help any member of your Incident Response Team . . . whether technical or not . . . recognize the incident response process as it unfolds.
