Breach Readiness as a Service
Ensuring that you're prepared to weather the (inevitable) storm
Why companies need BRaaS:
If you’ve ever thought “I don’t have information that anyone would want” or “I’m too small to be a target for a cyber-attack”, then you’re already setting yourself up for a ‘reactive’ approach to cybersecurity – which is backwards thinking. Reacting to a breach can set your organization back in more ways than the financial impact. Downtime will affect your organization’s productivity and ability to keep up with regular business; not to mention the impact a breach can have on your customer’s perception of your brand. BRaaS (Breach Readiness as a Service) will help your organization mitigate the effects of the breach and reduce the turnaround time.
Hackers don’t descriminate against the size of an organization or the industry.
When every organization is a target, whether they have one employee or one million employees, it’s critical for them to prepare for the worst. There are steps that organizations can take to prepare for a breach so that they can reduce downtime, minimize the effect, and protect their information.
Uzado’s BRaaS offers customers a proven proactive approach in preparation for a breach. Uzado will work with organizations to set up policies and procedures, form response teams where individuals will be assigned specific roles, establish the required channels of communications, and much more.
On average, it takes 191 days for organizations to detect a breach.
Uzado will provide organizations with Insights to show their preparedness. Organizations will be scored based on level of completion or the implementation of procedures, and compared to the industry’s average preparedness score; which gives organizations an idea of how they rate compared to other organizations. Goals can be customized to align with each organization’s mission, to show their progress and compliance
It’s critical for organizations to keep an ongoing inventory of all of their assets and systems. BRaaS will force organizations to update this list regularly, as each of the assets and their connections will need to be monitored for a breach.
When in crisis mode, it’s difficult to rationally think of who should notify whom and when they should be notified; not to mention, that some industries require specific stakeholders to be notified in such a case. For these reasons, Uzado institutes both a response call tree, and an escalation tree as preparation. Additionally, contact lists ensure that the appropriate people will handle any crafting of messages for the appropriate audiences.
Organizations are 28% more likely to experience a subsequent breach within the following 2 years.
Here’s what you can expect from Uzado for the initial onboarding:
- Information Gathering – this will include asset lists, network diagrams, systems information, etc. The more insight we have into the structure of your organization, the more we can help you prepare
- Response Processes – Uzado will review the current response process and tailor it as needed. If there is no response process in place, Uzado will provide a net new protocol
- Familiarization – Uzado will review various types of breaches that the organization may experience and ensure that the management and the response team feel comfortable that they have: (a) sufficient information should they need to call Uzado; and (b) a better understanding of what a breach might look like, so that they know when to engage Uzado.
- Response and Escalation Processes – Build out initial notification and escalation processes
- Shared Repository – At the completion of onboarding there should be a shared central repository of all breach response documents for the customer and Uzado to access
Here’s what you can expect from Uzado for ongoing BRaaS activities:
- Breach Readiness Response Service, phone and email available 24x7x365 to initiate the response for a breach
- Ongoing meetings to: (1) review any outstanding items from previous meetings to ensure completion or report on progress, using the Breach Readiness Insight; (2) review current processes, protocols, notification/escalations, etc. to ensure everything is up-to-date; (3) identify any changes or activities which need to be completed as takeaways
- Tabletop Exercise – twice annually (on average every 6 months) conduct a Tabletop exercise. The goal will be to pick either a potential breach that the organization may have recently had issues around, or pick a breach scenario from the news headlines
- Annual Review – Review all 12 Breach Readiness Insights, identify any possible trends, provide overall observations and recommendations to further improve the organization’s Breach Preparedness
