CybrHawk Incident Response & Management

Incident response is a coordinated approach to mitigating and handling the effects of a security breach or cyber-attack, also known as an incident involving IT, a software accident, or a security incident. The goal is to deal with the situation in a way that prevents harm and reduces the time and costs of recovery.

Incident response operations were carried out by the Computer Security Incident Response Team of the company (CSIRT), a team previously chosen to include information security and general IT staff as well as C-suite level members.

The incident response team follows the incident response plan (IRP) of the company, which is a series of written instructions detailing the organization’s response to network accidents, security incidents and verified infringements.

An attack on critical cloud services by a distributed denial of service (DDoS).

An attack of malware or ransomware that encrypts critical business data across the corporate network.

A successful attempt at phishing that has resulted in consumers being exposed to personally identifiable information (PII).

An unencrypted laptop believed to be missing from confidential customer records.

What does CybrHawk incident response team do?

A good response plan to incidents involves the development of a cross-functional team from different parts of the business. Any attempted incident response efforts will likely be ineffective without the right people in place. The group not only assists in the implementation of the incident response plan, but also deals with continuous monitoring and management, including day-to-day administrative command administration. Every member of the team should have clearly defined tasks and objectives. These are acts that take place not only during an incident, but also before and after an incident. The incident response team can include members of the overall safety committee of the organization.

Incident Response Management

The response to incidents is not unlike any other information security element. It requires careful preparation, constant monitoring, and consistent measures in order to measure efforts properly. Continuing mitigation initiatives include establishing and monitoring targets for incident response, checking the incident response plan regularly ensures its efficacy and provides instruction to all relevant parties on the applicable incident response procedures. Different metrics used to measure incident response programs ‘ effectiveness may include:

  • The number of reported events.
  • Number of missed occurrences
  • Number of incidents that would require action.
  • Number of repeated occurrences.
  • Timeframe for remediation.
  • Number of incidents resulting in infringements.
