Incident Response Plans


Incident response plans are essential in disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) because they protect companies against data security breaches. But many companies do not have an incident response plan.Incident response plans help minimize business risks, and they’re mandatory in today’s computing environments. However, incident response is often ignored at many enterprises because they think that it doesn’t serve any significant purpose.
