6 Incident Response Best Practices You Should Follow

When it comes to cybersecurity, organizations need to be well-prepared for what comes next. Not only are cybercriminals leveraging ever more advanced technology, but the cost of a breach — in terms of cost, reputation, and damage — is on the rise. Mitigating risk requires having a robust incident response plan in place and dedicated team members on standby. Let’s take a closer look.

CIS Control 17. Incident Response Management

The Center for Internet Security (CIS) offers Critical Security Controls (CSCs) that help organizations improve cybersecurity. CIS CSC 17 covers incident response and management. (In earlier versions of the CIS controls, handling of security incidents was covered in Control 19.) CIS CSC 17 focuses on how to develop a plan for responding to attacks and other security incidents, including the importance of defining clear roles for those responsible for the various tasks involved.

Incident Response vs. Disaster Recovery: Key Differences

As cybercrimes and security breaches become more sophisticated, data protection strategies have become more important to business survival. A critical element in an organization’s ability to effectively handle these incidents is to reduce downtime and minimize damage. This is where an effective incident response and disaster recovery plan comes into play.

Ultimate Guide: Creating a Cyber Security Incident Response Plan

A cybersecurity Incident Response Plan (CSIRP) is the guiding light that grounds you during the emotional hurricane that follows a cyberattack. A CSIRP helps security teams minimize the impact of active cyber threats and outline mitigation strategies to prevent the same types of incidents from happening again. But as the complexity of cyberattacks increases, so too should the strategies that prevent them.

It's time to invest in your incident response - here's how

Taking proactive measures is critical to any aspect of a strong cybersecurity strategy. And today, the need for a robust incident response plan has never been greater.

Automating the Security Protections rapid response to malware

Cyber attacks on corporate networks were up 50% in 2021, and it’s expected that 2022 will see more of the same. Elastic Endpoint Security includes a variety of protection layers to ensure maximum coverage against different types of malware. There have been a few examples recently of the need for fast, accurate updates of user environments in order to protect against the latest malware.
