What is Cyber Incident Response Plan?
A Cyber Incident Response Plan (CIRP) is a comprehensive plan for combating cyber threats and cyber attacks. Organizations use this plan to take an active role in cybersecurity and minimize the damage caused by viruses, hacking activities, and more.
The philosophy behind creating a Cyber Incident Response Plan (CIRP) is that defending a digital perimeter is simply not enough. Consultants and experts urge companies to develop and develop a CIRP to understand how to deal with cybersecurity issues and attacks.
In other words, organizations should expect cybersecurity events to occur and determine how mitigation will be carried out. Security experts indicate that the US government and the US Department of Defense are already taking these precautionary measures and that companies are following this example consequences should.
Part of building an effective CIRP is keeping it up to date and consistent across all departments in order to get some sort of 'everything on deck' response to a cyber incident. This allows for better and more effective control when one Cyber attack takes place.
Regarding the components of a CIRP, organizations can use an existing NIST 'Incident Taxonomy' to identify different types of attacks. You can identify high stakes data in order to find the right way to address different types of situations targeting parts of a corporate network. You can also look at 'fail modes' or emergency medication for systems that can be simulated, modeled, or tested to see how their security works in a real crisis. All of this helps protect companies from possible online attacks.
