Data breaches have become an unfortunate reality for most companies. If you haven't already experienced one, just wait. Whether state-sponsored or committed by an individual, hacking and the resulting loss of data, reputation and business profit must be a top priority for all organizations. And while it's important to keep up with the latest technologies to mitigate breach potential, it's equally as important to be ready to handle a breach once it occurs. A good way to do that is with incident response checklists.
When a security breach occurs, IT teams that are armed with incident response checklists will be better prepared to execute a fast and effective response.
