IT Security Tip: Do you need an “incident response” plan?

An incident response plan is an organized approach to addressing the aftermath of a security breach or cyber-attack. Certain industries, like medical or financial institutions, absolutely should have one.

But even if you don’t have a lot of sensitive information, it’s best to have SOME idea of what you would do if a cyber-attack locked all your files or stole confidential information.

Things to consider when you’re planning:

• Physical access to your building(s)
• What to do with lost or stolen mobile devices
• PCI (payment card industry) compliance requirements
• Data-breach incident response
• Threat monitoring
