This varies by organization but most policies include some of the following key elements: · Statement of management commitment · The purpose and objective of the policy · Scope of policy · Who has what role · Prioritization and severity of incidents · Performance measures · Reporting and Contact forms In the wake of an incident, a formal and focuses plan is crucial to getting an organization back up and running again as well as minimizing damage and making sure it doesn't happen again.
