The value of a comprehensive incident response plan, Sidhu says, "depends on how well it is documented and how well it is actually executed ahead of time [in a test]."

  • Proactively building a breach response mechanism;
  • Assessing the readiness of forensic capabilities;
  • The importance of information sharing during a security incident.
