  2. Does your organizations audit trail program require daily or automated log reviews that would be capable of quickly detecting if an Information security incident has occurred?

  3. Do you have an ethically sound plan for when and how to notify network/software users and other stakeholders of security incidents, including breaches and vulnerabilities?

  4. Is the expectation that security personnel will be present to control access, to contribute to a feeling of safety, or to provide escorts to vehicles at shift changes?

  5. Does your organization have established processes for escalating and responding to Information security incidents within all organizational departments and functions?

  6. Are you satisfied that your organizations strategies for reducing the risk of security incidents to an acceptable level are proportionate and targeted?

  7. Does your organization have security incident procedures to monitor and respond to all incidents that occur during and after normal hours of operation?

  8. Does your organization assess each security event using the agreed scale to determine if the event should be classified as a security incident?

  9. What principles have been developed for determining whether the response to a particular cybersecurity incident will involve which authorities?

  10. Are your Service Providers required to cooperate and assist you with Data Breach notifications, including where the Data Breach is fault?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Security Incident investments work better.

This Security Incident All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
