The Cyber Readiness Playbook

The Playbook is a practical guide to help reduce cyber risk and defend against the most common cyber issues. This playbook is a part of the Cyber Readiness Institute’s Cyber Readiness Program and is based on best practices from leading cybersecurity experts. It includes strong cyber policies that empower employees with practical knowledge and guidance and a defined Business Continuity Plan to prepare organizations to best respond to an incident.

The playbook contains fillable blank fields so that you can enter your organization’s name and information to customize these policies within the document and a checklist to help track your progress. Or feel free to incorporate the language into your internal materials and customize the content to meet your organization’s unique needs.
