Incident Response

An incident response is a structured approach that organizations use to manage and respond effectively to cybersecurity incidents or events.

While specific incident response plans may vary depending on the organization's size, industry, and other factors, they generally include the following elements:

  • Clearly defined procedures for identifying and classifying security incidents
  • Designation of a dedicated incident response team with defined roles, responsibilities, and contact information
  • Procedures for reporting and communicating incidents, both internally and externally
  • Procedures for promptly assessing and triaging incidents to determine their severity, scope, and potential impact
  • Evidence collection and preservation procedures
  • Plans for resolving the incident and restoring normal operations
  • Regulatory and legal reporting requirements
