INCIDENT RESPONSE ASSESSMENT

A SYSTEMATIC AND STRUCTURED APPROACH TO MEASURING YOUR INCIDENT RESPONSE CAPABILITY


Begin Your Journey, Eyes Wide Open.


Effective security practices reveal their level of readiness as they respond to cyber security incidents. When developing a program of work to improve your organization’s incident response capability, one of the first steps in identifying any potential gaps is to assess the level of maturity of your personnel and of your processes when planning for, responding to, and reviewing cyber incidents.

CyberStash helps organizations understand the state of their Incident Response program by measuring how well they have prepared, responded to and learned from cyber security incidents

BUSINESS CONTEXT


Regrettably, cyber security incidents have become a norm; organizations that have not been breached already will surely be breached in the future. We live in an age where cyber breaches are inevitable, and one in every two organizations compromised will experience business impact resulting in financial loss. It is clear that the way an organization prepares for, responds to, and learns from cyber security incidents governs its level of business resilience against cyberattacks

A well-prepared, well-adapted Incident Response Plan reduces the extent of business impact and financial loss on the organization. It also limits damage to the company brand and maintains client confidence. An appropriate response by an organization to an incident will, in fact, increase its reputation and boost client and investor confidence.

An organization’s level of maturity and preparedness to respond to incidents must be measurable. Before investment can be made by the business to improve its level of resilience, all identified gaps must be prioritized, assessed, and quantified appropriately.

Setting a benchmark for Incident Response that’s risk driven and then assessing the organization against that benchmark is thus the first step towards understanding where gaps exist. Consequently, as part of an overarching cyber security maturity program, organizations must first understand their current level of readiness before implementing strategies to enhance their level of cyber resilience.

OUR SOLUTION


No two organizations are the same. Setting an appropriate benchmark for the maturity level of an organization’s Incident Response Plan is the first key item CyberStash identifies. This is achieved by appreciating the business context of the organization and having an overview of the operational threat landscape.

Assessments should not be one-dimensional. CyberStash takes its time to understand the relevant and comparable importance of each incident response capability and assigns a weighting factor that helps prioritize the end results.

Using an evidence-based questionnaire, CyberStash works with your key stakeholders and SMEs to complete its assessment.

CyberStash assesses the organization’s preparedness, response and follow up activities in terms of its people, processes, and technology.

We then aggregate the results and provide you with a visual maturity heat map that measures the current state of incident response against the target state of maturity.

We provide a final report that includes risk-prioritized recommendations that the organization can use to begin its journey towards making tangible improvements to its incident response capability.
