Cyber Incident

An incident that adversely impacts, or threatens to adversely impact, the confidentiality, integrity and/or availability of an individual or organisation’s information, or that which it stores, accesses, or transmits belonging to others such as their/its clients, employees, suppliers or customers (‘ecosystem’). 
 
A cyber incident may be caused by error, or may have have malicious intent as in a cyber attack. If the incident was caused by malicious intent, it’s important to understand the motivations and objectives of the attackers. In either case, it is critical for resilience to have a well test incident response plan so the individual or organisation knows what to do if something goes wrong.
