Cyber disruption response plan
The Cyber Disruption Response Plan (CDRP) is part of the State Response Framework and a helpful roadmap for public entities on how and when to report a cyber incident. The CDRP is a companion document to the Cyber Incident Response Plan, outlining specific technical response actions.
The Quick Reference Guide consists of two charts found in the CDRP and provides immediate guidance in a fast-moving incident. Lastly, the Communications Flow Matrix outlines the flow of information in situations that are likely to affect public health, safety, or confidence. When using this Plan, remember to add contact information for the key partners to whom you would report a cyber incident, including the Connecticut Intelligence Center, via email at CTIC@ct.gov.
