Incident Response Retainer Services: Responding to the Scene of the Crime

The damage caused by data breaches has wide-ranging effects on financial services firms, making IR programs crucial.

Boston, October 26, 2021– The need for financial services firms to have a well-rehearsed incident response program is essential. A rule proposed in December 2020 seeks to reduce breach notification time to bank examiners to 36 hours. This proposed rule and other IR-related regulations make an IR program not only standard practice but also a regulatory requirement for institutions and their third-party service providers.

This report focuses on the IRR services market segment in which financial services firms may acquire external help with cybersecurity incidents through prenegotiated terms and conditions. It is based on an August and September 2021 survey of 24 IRR global vendors of comprehensive IRR services.
