A network security breach can be one of the most costly and disruptive situations a company can face. Modern malware payloads can spread quickly and unauthorized access through breached credentials can compromise the integrity of a company’s most sensitive information.
Unfortunately, once a breach has occurred, the time to “figure out what to do” is gone. Untangling the mess with an unorganized breach response substantially increases costs and can lead to avoidable reputational damage.
However, having an incident response plan (IRP) in place with pre-planned, vetted, and rehearsed steps is proven to support a more organized, rapid, and effective response, significantly mitigating unnecessary damage to the business. In 2020, companies that had a well-constructed IRP reduced their breach costs by 15%, equating to nearly $1.1 million in savings for U.S. based companies.
Regardless of the maturity of your business’s cybersecurity program, developing, training, and maintaining an IRP and team is one of the most beneficial proactive security investments your company can make.
