Incident response planning is the process of developing and implementing a plan to respond to cybersecurity incidents. This includes identifying potential incidents, defining roles and responsibilities, developing communication protocols, and creating procedures for containing, analyzing, and mitigating the impact of a cybersecurity incident.

Incident response planning is important because it can help organizations respond quickly and effectively to cybersecurity incidents. A well-designed incident response plan can help minimize the impact of an incident, reduce downtime, and prevent further damage to systems and data.

An organization needs an incident response plan to be equipped to handle a cybersecurity incident in a timely and effective manner. This can lead to increased downtime, data loss or theft, financial losses, reputational damage, and legal liability.
