Incident Response Preparation

The key to surviving a cyber incident is preparing your team for it.

Incident response preparation?

If your organisation was attacked in the next five minutes, what would you do? The key to survival is preparation - and by working with us you will be prepared to act decisively if and when a cyber incident occurs.

Our experts work with your team to identify vulnerable assets, draft organisational response plans, craft bespoke playbooks to common attack events, and create communications protocols, while thoroughly testing all processes to optimise response.

What will I receive?

IR Plan & Playbook Development

Blackpanda works with your team to build custom playbooks for the most common cyber security attacks, including malware, ransomware, business email compromise, and DDoS. We help your team strengthen its resilience and minimise the impact of a cyber security incident.

Communications, Escalation, and Handover Procedures

Together with your team we design bespoke procedures covering who to contact when and how in a security incident. This also includes guidance on when to escalate internally or inform authorities, and how to properly manage evidence when handing over a cyber incident to an external incident response firm or regulators. This saves you critical time and helps avoid miscommunications.

Data Breach Readiness Review

Blackpanda conducts a thorough review and identification of critical assets, data management policies, stakeholders and decision-making authorities, internal capabilities, third-party support, and external reporting obligations. This saves you crucial time in the event of an incident.

Incident Response Tabletop Exercises

Tabletop exercises are essential in verifying the efficacy of existing plans and playbooks in real-world cyber incidents. Blackpanda works closely with your team to run through a simulated cyber crisis in order to test communication, escalation, and handover procedures. This fosters confidence in your team and uncovers areas for improvement.
