Incident Response Planning

An SBS consultant can assure your well-structured Incident Response Plan (IRP) will help mitigate the negative effects of a security breach, as well as demonstrate to examiners that your organization is properly prepared to handle such an event.

Your consultant will:

  • Work with you to create an IRP that will comply with IT regulator and FFIEC requirements; and will assist in responding to an unforeseen IT security incident.
  • Ensure you have procedures in place to support the IRP, including a communication strategy on how you will inform customers of any security breach incidents, and a customer notification letter template.
  • Mature your IRP based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, including Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover.
  • Provide a mock scenario that will allow your institution to properly follow and test your IRP.
  • Review the results of the mock scenario test with you and provide a full report including the strengths and weaknesses of the current plan and recommendations for improving the process.
