What is incident response?
Incident response is a structured approach to handling and managing the aftermath of a security breach or cyber attack, with the goal of minimizing the impact and recovering as quickly as possible. It includes identifying and analyzing the incident, controlling and eradicating the threat, and restoring systems to normal operation. This process also involves learning from the incident to improve security measures and response strategies for future threats. Effective incident response requires a well-prepared team, clear procedures, and continuous improvement based on lessons learned.
