What to Do When the Worst Happens

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “Hope for the best, but expect the worst.” I’d like to offer the IT incident response version, “Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.” Unfortunately, examples of the worst are all around us: patient data stolen from healthcare organizations, customer data stolen from large corporations, social security numbers stolen from the federal government, and even client details stolen from an adultery website. Hackers aren’t just looking for information they can sell; they want embarrassing data, corporate strategy, product research or other sensitive data. Any company using the internet is at risk.
