Small Business Cyber Security Response and Recovery. Part I – Introduction
Part 1 – Introduction
These days most businesses rely on computers and the internet to do business. As they do so they become more and more dependent on the digital information they store, use and exchange within the business and to interact with other businesses and organisations. This inadvertently gives rise to the possibility of something unexpected happening in the business’s cyber dimension – a cyber incident.
A cyber incident can happen because of an accidental event – such as accidental damage to the IT infrastructure caused by fire, flood, theft, or some other occurrence. It can also be the result of deliberate action such as unauthorised or attempted access to the IT system in the form of breaches or malicious attacks – malware infection, ransomware, or phishing attacks.
In these mini-series addressed to small businesses, SEQRED will guide you on how to prepare for a cyber incident from response through to recovery in five steps:
- Preparing for incidents
- Identifying what is happening
- Resolving the incident
- Reporting the incident to wider stakeholders
- Learning from the incident
In the first article we will focus on best practices in preparing for a cyber incident.
