“ Incident Response Planning: Round Two”
by Jim Bothe and Jim Meyer
Hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Incident response planning is one of the best cybersecurity investments an organization can make. The Ponemon Institute reports a good plan can reduce the cost of a data breach by 25% saving as much as $40 per record lost. This discussion examines the 4 dimensions of an effective incident response plan.
