6 Phases of an Incident Response Plan

“Something has happened.” Your company has experienced the worst: a data breach. You’ll need to answer questions. You’ll need to implement emergency operations and plans, run backup, and talk to investigators. Not a convenient time to start your Incident Response Plan. 

According to Dave Ellis, SecurityMetrics VP of Investigations (GCIH, PFI, QSA, CISSP), an Incident Response Plan (IRP) is, in short, “What you do ahead of time, in preparation for an event that you hope never happens.” Ellis sits down with Host and Principal Security Analyst Jen Stone (MCIS, CISSP, CISA, QSA) to discuss in detail the phases of an IRP, along with the circumstances, variables, and options surrounding this “worst case scenario.”
