Incident Response Plan – Your Framework for Responding to an Information Security Breach

As many institutions can attest to today, it isn’t a matter of “if” you experience a breach that exposes confidential consumer information or results in identity theft, but “when". Any breach regardless of the type or size can be potentially devastating and expose the institution to a multitude of risks including financial loss, reputation damage, and regulatory, legal or compliance issues. Financial institutions are particularly vulnerable by the very nature of the business. You have information that thieves want, information they can parley into cold hard cash, if not the cash itself or commit identity theft. Despite the fact that rapid response is key to successfully responding to a data breach and minimizing the negative effects, the financial services industry is mandated to implement security controls that include identifying potential risks, monitoring for and detecting unauthorized access, mitigating the outcome, and notifying customers, law enforcement, and regulators when it does happen. Today you can be sure that examiners will be looking for your plan, but beyond that will you be able to effectively and quickly respond to an incident? A comprehensive Incident Response Plan is your road map for ensuring a timely response.

We will cover the key regulatory requirements including state level data breach notification laws and focus on the key elements of an Incident Response Plan.
