Updated National Cyber Incident Response Plan imminent

Updates to the National Cyber Incident Response Plan are being worked on by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the Office of the National Cyber Director after being mandated as part of the 2023 National Cybersecurity Strategy, according to The Record, a news site by cybersecurity firm Recorded Future. Modernizing the NCIRP to recognize the value of the private sector as the first responder to cyber incidents and bolster recovery efforts has been noted as crucial by CISA Executive Assistant Director for Cybersecurity Eric Goldstein. "Our goal is to provide an agile, actionable framework that can be actively used by every organization involved in cyber incident response to ensure coherent coordination that matches the pace of our adversaries," Goldstein added. CISA is poised to release a draft of the updated NCIRP document for public comment by December, with the new plan expected to be approved and published by the end of next year.
