Certain organizations have an incident response plan…And many people in management know that one needs to be in place. Of those that do have a plan, I have YET to see one that has a public relations component. You know those pesky news ferrets that will no doubt be calling, emailing, and worse shoving a microphone in your face when a breach occurs??
Well, here’s a good little piece on this very topic in the context of healthcare and HIPAA but it applies across the board.
If you don’t have a PR plan – make it happen. You don’t want to be caught with your pants down – literally – on this one.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
