Effective Practices for Cyber Incident Response and Recovery

On 21.10.2020, BaFin drew attention to a publication by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) dealing with the handling of cyber incidents (Effective Practices for Cyber Incident Response and Recovery). In particular, the urgency to address this issue is seen against the backdrop of the Corona crisis. The massive increase in cyber activity of people in family and business contexts leads to a significantly increased cyber threat potential, as the level of cyber security achieved in the business environment can hardly be expected in the “home office”. It must also be mentioned here once again that cyber security is not a purely technical issue, but must also be ensured in particular by adhering to processes and proven behaviour and the associated controls. The FSB publication “Effective Practices for Cyber Incident Response and Recovery” can be downloaded as a PDF document (https://www.fsb.org/2020/10/effective-practices-for-cyber-incident-response-and-recovery-final-report/) and sees itself as a best practice toolkit.

In 7 chapters, 49 best practices are described in short texts. The chapters cover the entire lifecycle of cyber incident response and recovery, starting withgovernance, planning and preparation, through analysis, mitigation, restoration and communication, tocoordination and communication, and finally toimprovement. The best practices presented in the respective chapter will probably only be fully met by very few companies. This makes it all the more important to take a closer look at them, which is easily done with this document in a relatively short time. On the negative side, perhaps, the authors have failed to follow an already established standard, such as ISO 27000 or NIST, and instead use a new structure.

“The Best of Both” – Jens Bohlen featured in “Interview der Woche”-Podcast by Project-Guru Mario Neumann

The Best of Both
Mario Neumann: “Jens Bohlen is a self-confessed fan of agile methods. He appreciates it when highly motivated experts develop IT solutions in iterative sprints. At the same time, he is also their biggest critic because, in his opinion, these people are often sloppy with quality, time and costs. I spoke with Jens Bohlen in the “Interview of the Week” about how to reconcile clear business goals and fixed deadlines with agile ways of working.”
