Three Ways to Prepare for a Data Breach

The better your response to a cyber attack, the more limited its impact. In fact, the Ponemon Institute says strong incident response (IR) saves an average of $400,000 in damages per data breach. But how do you ensure your IR is strong? By taking these three proactive steps before a breach happens:

1. Involve people across the organization, from legal to HR to finance, in developing and practicing your response plan.
2. Deploy threat intelligence tools so you can understand and counter an attack when it occurs.
    Determine the regulatory impact of a breach and ensure the appropriate people can respond quickly.
  • Data breaches are inevitable, but the steps you take today to implement IR processes will help you manage and mitigate the damage. If you’re not sure where to begin, call Xantrion for help.
