What is Incident Management?
With the number of devices connected to the internet exploding in recent years, the incidences of security breaches have skyrocketed. It’s absolutely crucial for companies to know how to respond and deal with the consequences of a cybersecurity incident. All organizations should have an incident response plan that also includes forensic analysis. However, most organizations do not have the deep in-house experience needed to respond when an incident occurs.
Incident response is a rapid response protocol designed to contain and stabilize the issue and serves as the first line of defense in security operations. This service includes:
- Malware analysis
- Identification and isolation of infected devices.
When are Incident Management Services needed?
It is wise to have a third party complete this type of work since internal employees could have been a part of the problem originally and may not be forthright about the issue. TriCorps can act as a resource to determine what happened so organizations can act appropriately. TriCorps specialists are available to arrive on-site quickly to triage a cybersecurity breach. TriCorps’ team of cybersecurity and law enforcement experts combine their expertise to uncover and identify where, how, and via whom the breach occurred.
Examples of Incidents that could occur:
- Large scale data theft perpetrated by an outside source.
- Large scale data theft by a current or former employee.
- Critical information leaks.
- Introduction of malware into the network.
- Discovery of a backdoor built into the network.
In 2017, 61% of data breach victims were companies with less than 1,000 employees.
How is this kind of work conducted?
Once incident management procedures are conducted and the breach is contained, digital forensic work can be conducted. In other scenarios, forensic work may be needed up front, and incident management processes can be put into place afterward to help fix the issue.
