> Services with an integrated approach > Incident Response Readiness Assessment (IRRA)

Are you ready to handle cyber incidents?

Is your organization ready to handle a cyber attack? Do you have the tools, processes, and people in place to respond quickly and effectively? If you are not sure, you may benefit from our Incident Response Readiness Assessment service.

During this assessment, we evaluate your organization’s ability to react to and handle a cyber incident adequately.


Reduced Downtime


A clear and tested Incident Response Plan


Compliance with cybersecurity regulations



  • How to establish an incident response plan that meets the criteria of applicable regulations, like NIS2 and DORA
  • How to ensure your organization is ready to handle a cyber-attack.
  • How to assign responsibilities to staff, in case of an attack, for effective governance
  • How to test and improve your incident response plan


Secura helps large and medium sized organizations all over Europe raise their cyber resilience. We know the importance of being ready for incident response, and we know how to do this. You don’t want to wait until disaster strikes.

  • Have an incident response plan in place that meets applicable standards
    The incident response plan complies with any relevant cybersecurity regulations for your organization , such as NIS2, DORA or R155/R156. It outlines the policies and procedures for each stage of the incident response life-cycle: preparation, identification, containment, eradication, recovery and lessons learned
  • Assemble an incident response team
    To handle severe cyber incidents, you need a multidisciplinary team that can coordinate and execute your incident response plan. This team should have representatives from major business units, such as IT, security, operations, legal, HR and public relations. The team should have executive management support and onsite staff if needed, clear roles and responsibilities, adequate training and skills, and effective communication channels.
  • Test and improve your incident response plan
    To test and improve your incident response plan, we will perform a tabletop exercise with all relevant stakeholders. This will help identify gaps and weaknesses in the team’s capabilities, tools and processes.

Note: The Incident Response Readiness Assessment (IRRA) is a stand-alone service. It is also available in our Incident Response PRO subscription.

Review and gap analysis

Secura conducts a review of your organization's current incident response capabilities, policies, procedures, and technical controls. We identify gaps in your incident response process. Also, we give you recommendations for improvement, based on probability and impact.


Incident Response Plan

We help you develop a comprehensive incident response plan, including a governance model, technical playbooks, work instructions for isolation of machines, documentation of procedures, policies, and an external communications plan. If you have one, Secura will review and revise your existing incident response plan with the organization's stakeholders.


Tabletop Exercise

We conduct a tabletop exercise with your team to test the incident response plan and identify areas for improvement. The workshop includes the organization's stakeholders, including IT, legal, compliance, and business units.


Summary Report and recommendations

You receive a detailed report summarizing the incident response readiness assessment and incident response plan. It includes recommendations for improvement and a concrete action plan.


Optional follow-up steps

After your Incident Response Readiness Assessment, it makes sense to test your implemented Incident Response plans. There are several ways to do this:

  • The first is to emulate a cyber incident, with real, but controlled scenarios. This is part of our SOC/SIEM testing service.
  • The second is through an actual Red Teaming exercise. The security posture of your organization is challenged from a real attacker's standpoint. Secura actually tries to reach the ‘crown jewels’. See our Red Teaming service for more information.
