Woodcutter saves little red riding hood


[Reading time: < 1 minute]

I recently told you the story of Little Red Riding Hood and her unfortunate granny.

But the story may not end there.

In one version of the story (what one might call ‘The Hollywood Version’), Little Red Riding Hood actually survives.

As described on Wikipedia:

After eating his prey, the wolf falls asleep.

A woodcutter comes to the rescue with an axe, and cuts open the sleeping wolf.

Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother emerge unharmed.

What does this tell us about the village?

It’s not clear how the woodcutter found out about the incident involving Little Red Riding Hood.

But, assuming he received some sort of alert about the event and he knew how to respond, it turns out that Little Red Riding Hood’s village had an incident response plan.

I’m sure no-one in the village wanted to consider the idea of a wolf eating one of their kids.

But they did consider the awful scenario.

And they had a plan to recover from the incident.

What’s your firm’s ‘woodcutter’ plan in the event of a cybersecurity incident?
