Preparing For and Responding To a Computer Security Incident: Making the First 72 Hours Count

1 October 2015
Mayer Brown Book

Computer security incidents pose substantial and growing threats to businesses. A company’s readiness to respond in the immediate aftermath of an attack is the key to minimizing the financial, reputational and legal damage associated with such an event.

This 60-page book offers insights on how to prepare for a computer security incident and how to implement a timely, effective response. The guide’s launch coincides with the beginning of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2015. Mayer Brown is an official Champion of NCSAM.

Authored by lawyers in the firm’s global Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practice, the guide serves as a valuable resource for in-house counsel, executives and other stakeholders as they assess and strengthen their companies’ incident response capabilities.

The guide is designed to:

  • Guide companies as they develop written computer security incident response plans and implement them in response to an incident;
  • Provide an overview of applicable regulatory requirements; and
  • Help board members, senior management, in-house counsel and other stakeholders anticipate and minimize financial, reputational and legal harm.
