The Third-Party Incident Response Checklist

Reference Guide

Build a Faster, Smarter Incident Response Program

While many organizations follow internal incident response procedures, most programs can't efficiently assess the risk to systems and data from a vendor, supplier, or other third-party data breach.

The Third-Party Incident Response checklist reveals the essential elements of a third-party incident response program. Read it to discover the important steps to take at every stage, including:

  • Preparation: Prepare your organization to prevent and quickly respond to incidents by properly managing your vendors and securing your systems.
  • Detection and Analysis: Ensure that your program is ready to identify and understand risks emanating from third-party attack vectors.
  • Containment, Eradication, and Recovery: Mitigate the impact of a third-party incident by implementing decision-making and remediation procedures.
  • Post-Incident Activity: Ensure that your organization is prepared for the next attack by taking steps to learn from incidents, improve your response processes, and maintain continuous visibility into third-party activity.
