Incident Response Tools: Securing Your Network
Incident Response Tools are software programs and applications that are designed to help organizations detect, investigate, analyze, and respond to cyber security incidents. These tools allow organizations to quickly identify and assess the scope of a security incident, as well as to develop and implement a response plan. Incident Response Tools typically include features such as network and host-based intrusion detection, log analysis, malware analysis, security incident correlation, and incident response automation. These tools can also enable organizations to quickly identify and assess the scope of a security incident, as well as to develop and implement a response plan. Additionally, Incident Response Tools can help organizations maintain compliance with industry standards, such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
