Incident Readiness

What is incident readiness?

Incident readiness is the proactive preparation and planning for cyber threats. Organizations should develop and refine incident response plans, test incident response plans through tabletop exercises, and implement measures to prevent, detect, and respond to security incidents. The objective is to minimize the impact of a security breach, reduce recovery time, and ensure a swift, effective response.

Why is incident readiness important?

As cyber threats are increasing in frequency and complexity, incidents can have devastating effects to an organization’s bottom line and reputation. Organizations need to be prepared to respond quickly and effectively to reduce the impact of security incidents, while also enhancing stakeholder confidence, regulatory compliance, and overall cybersecurity posture.
