Are you a Firefighter?
A firefighter would be working in the Cyber Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT). Any company with an online presence makes it a vulnerable global target to cyber threats with a challenging cyber-attack landscape pursued by an intelligent and evolving enemy.
Incident response (IR) is a structured methodology for handling security incidents, breaches, and cyber threats. A well-defined incident response plan allows you to effectively identify, minimize the damage, and reduce the cost of a cyber attack, while finding and fixing the cause to prevent future attacks.
During a cybersecurity incident, security teams will face many unknowns and a frenzy of activity. In such a hectic environment, they may fail to follow proper incident response procedures to effectively limit the damage. This is important because a security incident can be a high-pressure situation, and your IR team must immediately focus on the critical tasks at hand. Clear thinking and swiftly taking pre-planned incident response steps during a security incident can prevent many unnecessary business impacts and reputational damage.
