Why Ignoring Incident Response Could Spell Disaster


A recent survey of global enterprises on incident response, found that human error is a major contributing factor to cyber breaches. While threats evolve and grow in volume, lack of awareness and limited training for employees expose organisations to increased risk.

More organisations are now concentrating on implementing incident response capabilities prior to a cyber breach. However, challenges still remain, including:

  • An increase in the number of cyber incidents
  • The continued evolutions of the threats facing organisations
  • Organisations are not fully prepared to respond to these threats

2018 saw an unprecedented volume of data breaches in both the public and private sector. In some cases, these breaches had gone undetected for years, resulting in significant reputational and financial loss.
