3.4.4  Incident Response

An intrusion has been detected… Now what? Unless you are restricting yourself to observation only, as an academic exercise, the next step is to respond to it. This activity is known in security circles as “incident response”, and it includes activities like stopping further damage, investigating what happened, and performing required cleanup.

Incident Response

Incident response is the collective name for all of the activities performed in response to a perceived computer security related incident. It includes both “defensive” activities such as securing the network, and “offensive” activities like investigating the incident and possibly reporting details to law enforcement.
