Breach Readiness Assessment

Breach Readiness Assessment

In a study conducted on security breaches in 2015, it was found that hacking incidents reached a nine-year high, accounting for 37.9% of the total breaches. This marked an increase of 8.4% compared to the figures from 2014. Following closely was employee error or negligence, which accounted for 14.9% of the breaches, more than double the percentage reported in 2012 (7.2%).

Accidental exposure of data through email or the internet was identified as the third most common cause of compromised data, representing 13.7% of the breaches. Insider theft accounted for 10.6% of the breaches, while physical theft and breaches involving subcontractors or third parties accounted for 10.5% and 9.0%, respectively. Breaches resulting from data on the move accounted for 7.3% of the reported incidents, a significant decrease from the record high of 27.6% observed in 2007.

At Decyifer, our Breach Readiness Plans are carefully designed to cater to different audiences, with specific pre- and post-breach response activities, goals, logic, and values. We consider the following aspects in developing the plans:

  • Methods to enhance forensic investigations, including anti-forensic techniques and tactics.
  • Understanding the critical value of your digital assets and recognizing their tangible worth.
  • Reviewing and validating business continuity plans to ensure seamless operations in the event of a breach.
  • Managing supplier access to your systems and services to minimize potential vulnerabilities.
  • Validating your email policies to ensure effective communication and security measures.
  • Assessing the facts, advantages, and disadvantages of cyber insurance for your organization.
  • Developing strategic plans, timelines, and milestones specific to cyber breach incidents.

By incorporating these considerations into our Breach Readiness Plans, we aim to assist your organization in enhancing forensic investigations, protecting critical assets, maintaining business continuity, managing supplier access, improving email policies, understanding cyber insurance, and effectively responding to cyber breach incidents.
