Incident Response Plan Development

Building a Road Map to Respond and Recover

The key to successfully responding to and managing incidents is a comprehensive and rehearsed incident response program, and it starts with developing an Incident Response Plan. Your plan should provide a well-defined, consistent, and organized approach for handing incidents, as well as detailed steps to implement the plan.

Sage Advisors work with you to develop an Incident Response Plan that will ensure the sustainability and success of your organization when faced with the uncertainty that accompanies incidents ranging from cases of innocuous mistaken identity to sophisticated and complex cyber-attacks.

Sage’s Collaborative Approach

Familiarity with business needs and unique operating processes are critical to the Sage Methodology. This knowledge helps us assist you in the design and implementation of an Incident Response Program that is consistent with industry guidance, regulatory requirements, and accepted best practices. The Incident Response Program will include a comprehensive framework designed to satisfy:

  • Incident Detection
  • Incident Response
  • Containment
  • Mitigation
  • Evidence Handling
  • Investigation
  • Recovery
  • Reporting / Notification
  • Post-mortem / Lessons Learned

Sage Advisors collaborate with you to customize the program to organizational specifications, so the outcome is a program that is effective and meaningful.

Next Steps

Having an Incident Response Plan is only the first step to becoming cyber resilient! Practice makes all the difference between success and failure. Sage’s Incident Response Preparedness, and Plan Evaluation Exercises are a great way to ensure your team is prepared to quickly react and respond. The Preparedness Exercise covers a broad range of incident management considerations designed to get the organization thinking about Incident Management holistically rather than as a function of the IT Department. The Plan Evaluation Exercise is designed to test the plan itself, to ensure it is effective and contains procedures that work as intended.
