Many businesses focus on getting their I.T. systems up and running following a cyber-attack, however consideration also needs to be given to:
– What data has been compromised?
– What the hackers could potentially do with that data? (e.g. send fake invoices to clients; target clients/suppliers in further cyber-attacks; access confidential &/or sensitive information etc)
– Whether the ICO need to be notified of a data breach under GDPR
– Whether all data can be recovered (or if back ups are affected as well)
– What the reputational damage may be
– What the route cause of the attack was and whether systems remain in any way compromised
– Whether any email diverts have been set up
– Whether any malware or spyware has been installed …
The list goes on ……..
