Security Incident Response

How well does your Security Incident Response plan work?

The exponential rise of cyberattacks and security breaches raises the bar for information security. You need to know who to call, email and notify the instant a breach occurs.

The incident response plan (IRP) is also a requirement for  ISO 27001 and HITRUST certification and the HIPAA Security Rule. A security incident doesn’t necessarily equal a data breach, but you still need a plan for when it happens.

Incident Response: Create, Test, Train

With our security incident response services, you get a plan that fits your organization. Apgar & Associates tests the plan and trains your incident response team, too. The right people will know the right way to respond every time there’s an incident.

Breach Investigation

If a breach does occur, part of Incident Response is knowing how to prevent it from happening again. We do a complete and thorough assessment of what happened, and help you develop steps to protect your organization’s sensitive data.

Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

If a security incident, such as a cyberattack, interrupts your business operations, you’ll pull the business continuity plan into play. The business continuity plan is about the impact of the event, how you can continue to function or how fast you can recover. That’s crucial to your ability to stay in business and mitigate any blowback from service or care interruption.

When a disaster level business interruption event happens, like a mega-earthquake, fires, floods, or cyberattack, can you run your business? Do you have electricity and phones, somewhere, to continue business operations? That’s what a business continuity plan does.

Your data disappeared? Or it’s inaccessible? That’s when you activate the disaster recovery component of the business continuity plan. Disaster recovery is about getting data back, whereas business continuity is about getting business operations back. Our security incident response services touch on every aspect of your ability to recover from an incident. Plus, you can incorporate business continuity planning as part of the service, so you know you’re covered, no matter what the incident may be. Contact us today to learn more.
