    Contingency Planning

    Contingency planning involves determining the roles and responsibilities of each organization involved in responding to an incident and ensuring clear jurisdiction and coordination among them.

    – Having clear contingency plans in place minimizes disruption to operations during an incident.
    – Ensuring that each organization involved has clear jurisdiction avoids confusion and delays in response.
    – Regularly updating contingency plans allows for adaptability to new situations and changes in regulations.
    – Conducting drills and exercises helps identify potential gaps in the plan and improves response efficiency.
    – Collaboration and communication among all stakeholders ensures a coordinated and effective response.
    – Having backup systems or redundancies in place reduces the impact of an incident on operations.
    – Defining roles and responsibilities within the contingency plan clarifies individual tasks and prevents duplication of efforts.
    – Having designated decision-making authority streamlines the decision-making process during an incident.
    – Establishing clear protocols for data management ensures the accuracy and security of critical information.
    – Reviewing and learning from past incidents improves preparedness and response for future incidents.

    CONTROL QUESTION: What jurisdiction does each of the organizations involved have in the planning or response to the incident?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:
    By 2031, our organization will have successfully implemented a global contingency plan that ensures seamless coordination and collaboration between all organizations involved in emergency response and management. This will include a comprehensive understanding of each organization′s jurisdiction and authority, and clear protocols for decision-making and resource allocation in the event of an incident.

    Our goal is to establish a unified network of contingency planning and response, where all stakeholders, including local, national, and international organizations, work together seamlessly to mitigate the impact of emergencies and ensure the safety and well-being of all individuals affected.

    To achieve this, we will invest in state-of-the-art technology and training programs to enhance communication and information sharing between organizations. We will also work closely with government agencies to establish standardized procedures and regulations for contingency planning, ensuring a coordinated and efficient response to any crisis situation globally.

    Furthermore, our organization will aim to establish a rapid response team consisting of trained professionals who can be deployed to any location in the world within 24 hours of an emergency being declared. This team will have a deep understanding of each organization′s jurisdiction and will work closely with local authorities to provide immediate assistance and support.

    Through our efforts, we envision a future where emergency response is swift, coordinated, and effective, regardless of geographical boundaries or organizational boundaries. We believe that this big hairy audacious goal is not only achievable but necessary in today′s ever-changing and unpredictable world. Together, we can create a safer and more resilient future for all.

    Contingency Planning Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Case Study: Contingency Planning for a Large-Scale Cyber Attack in the Financial Industry

    Client Situation:

    The client is a multinational financial services company, with operations in multiple countries worldwide. The company provides financial products and services to individuals, businesses, and institutions. The complexity and size of the client′s operations make it a prime target for cybercriminals, and the risk of a large-scale cyber attack is a critical concern for the company.

    The recent increase in cyber attacks on financial institutions has raised concerns within the client′s senior management team. They have realized the need for a robust contingency plan to mitigate any potential damage a cyber attack could cause. As such, they have engaged our consulting firm to develop a comprehensive contingency plan that addresses the risks of a cyber attack and outlines a strategy for an effective response in case of an incident.

    Consulting Methodology:

    Our consulting methodology for this project involves a combination of industry best practices, relevant regulations, and guidelines from various international bodies such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

    We conducted a thorough risk assessment to identify potential vulnerabilities in the client′s systems and processes. Using this information, we created a detailed business impact analysis (BIA) to assess the potential consequences of a cyber attack on the company′s operations. This analysis helped us prioritize critical systems and processes that require immediate attention in the event of an incident.

    Based on the BIA, we developed a comprehensive contingency plan covering all the essential aspects of preparation, response, and recovery. The plan includes step-by-step procedures for activating the plan, roles and responsibilities of stakeholders, communication protocols, and strategies for damage control and business continuity.


    1. Risk Assessment Report: This report outlines the findings of the risk assessment, including identified vulnerabilities and their likelihood of exploitation.

    2. Business Impact Analysis (BIA) Report: The BIA report identifies critical business functions, their maximum tolerable downtime, and the potential financial and reputational impact of a disruption.

    3. Contingency Plan: The contingency plan details the procedures, roles, and responsibilities for each phase of the incident response, as well as communication protocols, and strategies for business continuity.

    Implementation Challenges:

    One of the significant challenges we encountered during the project was the coordination between the different business units and jurisdictions within the organization. Due to the global nature of the company′s operations, there was a need to align the contingency plan with the respective regulations and laws of each country.

    Moreover, the client also faced resistance from some business units regarding the investment required for implementing the contingency plan. As such, our consulting team had to work closely with the client′s senior management to provide them with a detailed cost-benefit analysis to convince them of the importance of this initiative.


    1. Time to activate the contingency plan: This KPI measures the duration between the detection of an incident and the activation of the contingency plan. A shorter time indicates an efficient response.

    2. Time to recover: This KPI measures the speed of recovery after an incident has been contained. An effective contingency plan should have a shorter recovery time to minimize the impact on business operations.

    3. Successful restoration of critical systems: This KPI measures the percentage of critical systems and processes that were successfully restored during an incident.

    Management Considerations:

    1. Executive Support: For the successful implementation of a contingency plan, the support of top-level management is crucial. Our consulting team worked closely with the client′s senior management to ensure that they are fully aware of the risks and importance of this initiative.

    2. Regular Testing and Training: A contingency plan is only effective if it has been tested and all stakeholders are aware of their roles and responsibilities. Our team provided training sessions and conducted regular drills to test the effectiveness of the plan and identify any gaps that need to be addressed.

    3. Continuous Monitoring and Updating: The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and a contingency plan must be regularly reviewed and updated to keep up with these changes. Our team recommended continuous monitoring and periodic updates to ensure the plan′s effectiveness.

    Jurisdictional Considerations:

    In the planning and response to a cyber attack, the following organizations within the client′s operations have specific jurisdiction:

    1. Headquarters: The client′s headquarters, located in the United States, has jurisdiction over the entire organization and is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the contingency plan.

    2. Country-Specific Regulation Bodies: Each country the client operates in has its own regulatory body that sets standards and requirements for data protection and incident response. These bodies have jurisdiction over their respective jurisdictions in case of an incident.

    3. Local Law Enforcement: In case of a cyber attack, local law enforcement agencies have jurisdiction over their respective countries. They will need to be notified and involved in the response, especially if the attack leads to financial loss or data theft.


    As the threat of cyber attacks continues to rise, it is essential for organizations to have a robust contingency plan in place. In this case study, we have illustrated our consulting methodology for developing a contingency plan for a large-scale cyber attack in the financial industry. By leveraging industry best practices and international guidelines, our team was able to create a comprehensive contingency plan that addresses the client′s specific needs and aligns with the relevant regulations and laws of each jurisdiction. Continuous monitoring and testing of the plan are crucial for its effectiveness, and executive support plays a vital role in its success. With this plan in place, the client can now respond effectively to any future incidents and minimize the impact on their operations, reputation, and bottom line.
