The Defendify Incident Response Plan Builder helps prepare a business in the event of a cyber-breach by aligning the entire organization around what remediation steps to take, when to take them, and who is responsible for each task. Through an intuitive wizard, Defendify simplifies how companies can build an organized Incident Response Plan that will significantly reduce the time it takes to identify and address a cyberattack, thereby mitigating the risk of longer-term downtime and expense.

  • Build an incident response plan in minutes through an easy-to-use wizard
  • Identify, contain, and report cyber incidents with clear steps and ownership
  • Align internal and external resources with an organized and rapid plan for remediation
  • Be prepared to address common attacks (e.g. viruses, ransomware, business email compromise, etc.)

  • What is an incident response plan?

    An incident response plan is a critical component of cybersecurity and should include clear guidelines on:

    • How to prepare for and identify a cyber incident
    • What individual steps need to be taken for each kind of incident
    • Timeline and workflow of the incident response process
    • Who on the team is responsible for what steps
  • Who is an incident response plan for?

    The reality is there is no such thing as 100% security, no matter how much we try to protect ourselves and our businesses. That said, there is no excuse why business owners and IT managers can’t collaborate on building an incident response plan to reduce risk in the event of a cyber incident. An incident response plan provides clear guidance and instruction, and helps to avoid confusion or panic over “What do we do next?”

  • Why is an Incident response plan important?

    Mitigate expense. The longer it takes to identify and contain a breach, the higher the cost to repair. 40% of small businesses experienced eight or more hours of system downtime due to a security breach in the past year. By having a plan in place, you will significantly cut down-time and associated cost and get back to doing business.

    Identify, contain, and report cyber incidents with clear steps and ownership. Just as with the passengers in the exit row of a plane, you want to make sure all members of your team understand their roles and act quickly to help prevent further disaster. An incident response plan clearly assigns specific next steps to the appropriate team members that will help your team work calmly and smoothly together.

    Help to preserve the continuity of your business operations as well as your reputation. A cyber incident or attack doesn’t just have the potential to wreak havoc on your bank account - it could also impact your business reputation and relationships. By quickly identifying the incident, you have a better chance of recovering from damage caused to your or your customers’ data - getting out ahead of a possible news story or scandal.

Act fast to prevent long-term damage from a cyber breach

Studies show it typically takes a business months to recuperate from a cyber breach, not days or weeks. The longer it takes to identify and contain a breach, the higher the cost to repair and recover from damage caused to your or your customers' data. Having an incident response plan helps to preserve the continuity of your business operations as well as your reputation.

When to build and update your Incident Response Plan

Every business needs an incident response plan. As a living document, your incident response plan should be updated regularly to address emerging cyber threats, along with naming any additional stakeholders who may be required to act should a cyber incident occur.
