New threats emerge everyday. There’s always a chance that your business is being targeted by criminals and that they will find a way in. Containing and responding to a breach are the first steps if the worst does happen, but the danger and disruption hasn’t well and truly passed until you’re back to business as usual. We’ll help you get back on your feet as quickly as possible by signposting you to the right resources with a credible, effective and resourced data and cyber attack recovery plan.
Insurance is a key part of your IT disaster recovery, so we’ll ensure robust measures are in place. We’ll check that the service levels and response times and service level are appropriate to your needs, that your business meets the right prerequisites, and that the time period in place is substantial enough to cover you for the long-term. We’ll also advise on what to do next if you’re caught short of cover, with contingency planning for loss of earnings, if needed.
In some businesses, a cyber attack risks more than exposing data. There could be substantial impacts to areas like infrastructure, ecology and beyond. Our IT disaster recovery plan will help you identify who to inform, how quickly, and exactly what to do in this type of situation. We’ll also guide you on appointing a dedicated contact at your business to handle any PR and strategic communications needs, with suggestions on what to say to partners, suppliers, customers and staff in the event of an attack, so they’re reassured you’re keeping them safe. Finally, we’ll check whether you need a specialist firm to manage this area for you.
Data breaches and breaches of GDPR law are significant risks to businesses. You are legally obligated to report any incidents to the ICO, when a certain threshold is met, and within 72hrs. Deciding whether to report can be a difficult decision, but failure to report can result in enforcement action. Ensuring you’re complying with your own regulatory obligations and any ICO investigations prevents further disruption and potential litigation for your business, so we’ll advise on how and when to report a data breach. Ensuring you’re compliant shows you’re upholding industry standards, and will go a long way in reassuring clients, partners and others. But it’s not just our own lessons learnt that are important.
Any cyber-attack can threaten the loss of business, disruption to your staff and customers, and disturbance to your day-to-day operations. One in six (17%) of all firms attacked last year said the impact of an attack was serious enough to materially affect the viability and solvency of their business. From examining the potential impact on your share prices, to predictions about how a breach could affect future business, we’ll model potential scenarios to ensure that if a hack happens, the lights stay on.
