Incident Response. Have You Tested? Canada 150 Recommendation #120

Friday’s= Computer Security

How often do you test your plans?

When we are setting policies, we should consider how to determine if our plans are actually going to work. We require everyone to back up their work. Do we also require them to test their backups?

Have you tried to restore your backed up data — to see if it works, and that you have the right stuff being backed up?

If you have a disaster recovery plan, have you tried to go to the other offsite location and run your computer programs?

Have you pretended that you have a cyber incident and practiced your plan?

It is easier to figure out if your policies work when you actually test them.
