What does Regulatory Changes Really Mean for Your Cyber Incident Management Plans and Reporting
There is growing concern amongst some executives regarding the new regulations for reporting on how to handle a cyber incident and incident disclosure on both the SEC and NIS II mandates. In this session we will talk about what you should do during a cyber incident and how it looks like on the ground, how to get your IR plans tested, and what a solid Incident Management plan looks like for reporting purposes. We will explain and offer solutions about what triggers the clock and the levels of visibility or incident understanding needed to be able to comfortably meet the new requirements.
Finally, we will look at what you could be doing between now and the enforcement of the new regulations, including building training exercises, major incident skills, and team cohesion. We will also provide a checklist of best practices to include on such reporting whether it is a management plan or if you experience a cyber incident.
