Incident Response


Streamlining Security Incident Management & Responses

In order to get a grasp on how to ease security incident management and response processes, there are terms to be clarified first. First of all, a security incident is the common name of an attack towards an organization’s cybersecurity system, network, or data in general. In addition, TechSlang also includes successful attacks within the term “incident”. Therefore, whether impactful or not, all types of attacks, violations, or exploitations can be described as security incidents.

The State of Incident Response

Kroll, Red Canary and VMware conducted a survey of over 400 information security and 100 legal and compliance leaders from companies with over $500M in annual revenue to capture the current state of incident response from a technical and legal perspective. Our goal was to highlight trends, identify common challenges and understand how organizations are maturing their preparedness, detection and response programs.

From The Future CIO Report: For Most, Cyber Incident Response Remains a Challenge

With most organizations receiving over 100 threat alerts every day and a reduction of endpoint visibility due to the shift to remote work, the ability to quickly detect and confidently respond to cyber threats has become a difficult challenge for organizations to undertake on their own.


What is an incident response plan? Reviewing common IR templates, methodologies

In today’s threat landscape, it’s no longer if an incident will happen, it’s when. Defending your organization and having a plan for what to do if an incident occurs is more critical than ever. And frankly, the benefits of having an incident response plan are quantifiable. Ponemon’s Cost of a Data Breach Report compared organizations boasting robust security Incident Response (IR) capabilities with those that do not.

It’s easy to overlook the human elements behind cyber threats and cyberattacks. We tend to focus our time analyzing the technical mechanics behind executed attacks, their vulnerabilities and exploits, and their potential mitigation techniques. While all important factors, they don’t account for the people behind the threat. This ultimately leaves you exposed and without crucial context to aid us as you allocate security resources and evaluate assets likely to be targeted.


How to Test Your Incident Response Plan: Everything You Need to Know

Cyber threats are constantly evolving. All systems, people and processes around us are unceasingly dependant on technology. Even the most sophisticated cyber defense frameworks that seem virtually impenetrable can be breached by unauthorized intrusions. This escalates the need to formulate a steadfast incident response plan and conduct regular tests to assess its capabilities.

Cybersecurity breaches are at a record high and the trends indicate that the situation is nowhere close to dying out. The past year has seen a surge of attacks on global business giants narrating their experiences and spelling out that expensive resources and tools are not enough to defend an organization from security threats. (Bold, Italics) So, what is it that businesses need to do to ensure that their security system is immune to attacks?

To build an exceptional security posture, organizations cannot just implement a case management platform and let it rust. With the evolving threat landscape, security tools and systems need to be checked periodically to test their relevance and to bring the employees up to speed with its functionalities. When a disaster hits, people and processes should be ready to tackle the threat head-on. This makes planning and testing the plan a key element towards the right incident response strategy.


3 Steps to Building a Resilient Incident Response Plan

According to the Accenture State of Cybersecurity 2020 report, the average cost of a cyber attack for ‘non-leaders’ stands at $380,000 per incident. The report classifies organizations into ‘leaders’ and ‘non-leaders.’ The ‘leaders’ are those who set the bar for innovation and achieve high-performing cyber resilience. Given the rate of cyber attacks today, a security breach can easily run a non-resilient business into a major loss.


Joint "CYPRES" Report on Incident Response Released by FERC

Earlier this month, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) published a joint report entitled “Cyber Planning Response and Recovery Study” (CYPRES) in partnership with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and eight of its Regional Entities (REs) in order to review the methods for responding to a cybersecurity event.
