Emergency Planning

Emergency Planning refers to the process of developing a comprehensive strategy and framework to respond to and recover from cyber incidents, such as data breaches, network outages, malware attacks, or system compromises. It involves creating predefined procedures, protocols, and resources to mitigate the impact of incidents, minimize downtime, and restore normal operations as quickly as possible

Assess risk exposure

  • Determine the likelihood of vulnerabilities being exploited by external threats.
  • Determine the likelihood of vulnerabilities being exposed by inappropriate use.
  • Determine the security and safety impact of any individual combination of vulnerabilities being exploited.


Develop protection and detection measures

  • Reduce the likelihood of vulnerabilities being exploited through protection measures
  • Reduce the potential impact of a vulnerability being exploited


Establish contigency plans

  • Develop a prioritised contingency plan to mitigate any potential identified cyber risk.


Respond to and recover from Cyber Security incidents

  • Respond to and recover from Cyber Security incidents using the contingency plan.
  • Assess the impact of the effectiveness of the response plan and re-assess threats and vulnerabilities.
