Planning Considerations for Cyber Incidents

Guidance for Emergency Managers


An interruption in one organization or system, whether from a natural hazard, human error, equipment failure, or malicious attack, may have widespread impacts across a network.


In the worst cases, this puts lives at risk and causes significant economic challenges. For these reasons, it is increasingly important that organizations and jurisdictions have a cybersecurity program in place to protect against disruptions and a cyber incident response plan in place to enable quick, effective resolutions when an incident occurs.


Developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in collaboration with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), this guide is intended to help state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) emergency management personnel collaboratively prepare for a cyber incident and support the development of a cyber incident response plan or annex. While focused on the roles and responsibilities that emergency managers in government may have, emergency managers in academia, nonprofits, or the private sector may also find the concepts helpful, especially if they serve on a jurisdiction’s planning team.
