Lesson 17: Communications (RS.CO)

In this lesson students will learn about the importance of Communications to help prepare their organization for the inevitable Cybersecurity breach. In this lesson we will clarify some of the technical requirements required to document and preapprove the organization’s Communication Plan created for use during a Cybersecurity Incident. These requirements include documenting and communication roles and responsibilities, creating communication pieces for Cybersecurity incidents aligned with the organization’s response plans, coordinating stakeholders, and releasing incident details to external parties. In this lesson we will review many valuable considerations for the establishment of a Cybersecurity Incident Communications Plan. We will also provide an exercise for students to practice their newfound knowledge and develop new Cybersecurity skills.
