Cyber resilience: incident management

Cyber capability toolkit to help organisations develop plans for responding to the threat of cyber attacks.


The cyber capability toolkit has been created to help organisations manage their cyber incident response.

The toolkit (attached) contains:

  • a model public sector incident response plan template
  • a model incident response plan template for private and third party organisations
  • a set of playbooks covering data loss, denial of service, malware, phishing and ransomware 
  • a cyber incident assessment tool designed to provide high level insight into the organisation's maturity across a range of related incident management controls

The toolkit will be subject to constant review, building on good practice, lessons from exercises and incidents and feedback from public bodies.
