What Is Cyber Incident Response and Recovery?

When a hacker or attacker gains unauthorized access to an online system or a digital data repository, that is called a cyber incident. Cybersecurity incidents often result in network exposure, data theft and other system vulnerabilities. Incident response involves the policies and procedures your organization uses to identify, mitigate, eliminate and prevent future cyberattacks.

What Is Digital Forensics?

Digital forensic professionals in cybersecurity collect, process and analyze evidence to help determine network vulnerabilities and resolve them. They go deep inside computers, handheld devices and networks to recognize potential threats. Digital forensics also involves documenting information for law enforcement and insurance companies.

How Do You Respond to a Security Incident?

The best cyber incident response is a fast response. By the time an incident is discovered, malicious actors have already obtained access to the network and the data therein. The confusion around what data was accessed, where the breach originated, and the extent to which the attacker has infiltrated the network will make it difficult to move forward with remediation. 

Time is a critical element in any security incident. The longer the attacker is able to remain in the network, the more they can manipulate information and exploit security vulnerabilities. With each moment that passes, there is an increased risk of permanent data loss, damaged company reputation, and exposure of client or employee information. Disaster recovery in cybersecurity can be costly in more than one way. It is important to have the plans and resources available to regain control over your network.

What Is a Cyber Incident Response Plan?

Preparation is one of the most critical phases of the incident response lifecycle. The worst time to create and test your incident response plan is during a live incident. Partner with ProCircular’s cybersecurity incident response experts to develop a tailored Incident Response Plan. The plan, developed from NIST standards, includes applicable compliance regulations and results from interviews with client stakeholders. 

This type of assessment prepares your team to take immediate action when an incident is detected. After the plan is created, our experts will customize and facilitate tabletop exercises to simulate real-world cyber attacks, frequently adapted from live incident response investigations, to educate your team and gain familiarity with the entire incident response lifecycle. This plan will include proper communication with internal stakeholders and a plan for involving legal, PRor third-party forensic firms. 

Preparation is a key part of cybersecurity incident response planning, and it can help dramatically reduce the impact of suspected or active breaches.
