Step 16: Complete the Incident Response Policy Plan (IRP)
The resulting IRP should be a total of 10 to 12 pages that present an actionable plan to fully address a breach of the organization’s PII. It should include a final paragraph on your thoughts about how the recommendations are likely to be received.
This final step is to bring all the work together. Use what has been created in the previous steps as detail to support your completed plan on incident response. Synthesize the material and include all CIO (instructor) feedback received.
Include in your comprehensive IRP the review and findings from a policy approach to maintain or exceed compliance with all regulatory demands. In addition, demonstrate your adherence to the best possible outcome for victims of a PII breach.
Remember, confidence in and approval of the approach is mandatory. It has already been determined that a breach of the organization’s PII is a serious matter. The CEO and the rest of the executives are depending on your expertise to address the situation quickly and effectively. This IRP is that plan of action.
Submit the complete report to the CIO for approval and delivery to the senior leadership team.
