Let’s be honest: No one wants to experience a computer security incident. That’s likely why many organizations don’t plan for one by creating incident response teams, incident response plans, or testing their capabilities. It’s also the likely reason most organizations are caught off guard when they do experience an incident. The reality is that every organization will experience an incident at some level. However, responding to an incident doesn’t have to be as complex as we often make it. It’s all about what happened, how did it happen, when did it happen, and what data was at risk? Once we have that figured that out, then we can get back to what we do best.
Since incident response issues are no longer just an IT issue and can often involve legal issues, it is important for organizations to develop an incident response team, seek outside expertise, and have an overall action plan in the event of an incident. In this podcast, LBMC Information Security’s Bill Dean discusses how a complex situation like incident response can be purely based on common sense.
