Considerations for Implementing a Next-Gen Incident Response Process

By John McDonald

Next-Gen Incident Response Whitepaper

As with most aspects of IT security, today’s rapidly evolving IT and threat landscape are forcing organizations to reconsider how they approach managing security incidents. While a war room full of empty coffee cups, stale pizza and tired security analysts might have sufficed in the past, today’s rapid-fire attack threats are mandating a more structured and business-oriented approach to incident management. As a result, organizations are realizing that security in general, and security incident management in particular, can no longer be the sole domain of a single technical team, but needs to incorporate resources from across the organization in order to effectively manage the risk such incidents represent.

This whitepaper provides an overview of how organizations will need to approach incident response and management in the face of an ever-growing number of attacks and penetrations.
