Cyber Incident Response Plan (CIRP)
A Cyber Incident Response Plan provides a structure approach to managing a cyber security incident. It ensures all required actions have distinct ownership and clearly defined lines of communication.
The CIRP is a whole business responsibility and the foundation of a CIRP is a suitable Cyber Incident Response Team. This team will require representation from many functional departments and senior management representation. CIRP Teams typically consist of the following functions –
- Senior Management
- Data Protection
- IT/IT Security
- Human Resources
The CIRP team is supported by a suitable set of response templates that ensure the technical procedural requirements and stakeholder communications are delivered in a timely manner. We also recommend that the CIRP is tested by a suitable tabletop exercise to ensure it functions as expected.
The creation of a CIRP is not an onerous task, the support from Evolve North to build a CIRP is typically four to five days.
