Cyber incident response recovery checklist

No matter the size of your organisation, most will, at some point, fall victim to a cyber security incident. 

We recently published Evalian’s checklist for planning and preparing for one here, which can help reduce the likelihood of cyber threats and improve your cyber security. 

But what do we do if we fall victim to a cyber attack? 

It’s important to know the steps to take to minimise the time systems are down/ not operational and to help your business recover.

When responding to an incident, there is usually pressure to focus on getting systems back up ASAP – especially business-critical systems. Particularly if you have SLAs with customers where there may be financial or other penalties or reputational repercussions if your systems aren’t functioning.  But this can exacerbate the problem. 

Evalian have put together a high level checklist to give you a good starting point. 

Incident Response checklist for dealing with an incident:

Contain the breach

Reconnect systems
