Incident Response: Strategies and Procedures

Incident response is a set of procedures and processes for responding to and managing the aftermath of a security breach or cyber attack. It includes identifying the cause of the incident, assessing the damage, and implementing measures to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. It also involves communicating with stakeholders and responding to regulatory requirements. Incident response is an important part of an organization's overall security strategy and should be planned and tested in advance.
