Incident Response Checklist

by | 23 April 2021

Incident response can be stressful, especially when the incident is severe and business operations are disrupted. Having a robust incident response plan ready before an incident can help organisations quickly and more effectively contain threats and recover, instead of only reacting when the incident happens and trying to make plans on the fly. An incident response plan which has been thought through and rehearsed beforehand is key to containing the incident and limiting damage and disruption to business operations.

This Incident Response Checklist is structured around the IPDRR (Identify, Protect, Detect, Response, Recover) framework developed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and is intended to guide organisations in preparedness, response and recovery to cyber incidents.
