Incident response plans are critical to ensuring an organization’s business continuity. If an organization neglects to establish an incident response team, how will they effectively remediate a security incident when – not if – one occurs? Incident response teams need to have established roles and responsibilities, extensive training, and current procedures to follow in order for an incident response plan to be effective. For example, if an entity’s server goes down, who on the incident response team is responsible for identifying that? Who is responsible for understanding the impact that security incident has on the organization? Who determines how the security incident will be addressed? Who communicates that to management or other stakeholders? These are all factors that need to be considered when putting together incident response teams.
