Help Writing an Incident Response Plan

Incident response is important in regard to security incidents. Do you have a plan in place? If not then a newly publish outline can help you get started writing such a plan for your business.

Written by William Lynch, a senior consultant for CTG's information security services, the plan is designed for small and medium businesses. The outline is a reasonable starting point for developing a full-fledged incident response plan and includes sections that help define what consitutes an incident, how to contain and erradicate the incident, who should handle the work involved, assessment and recovery, and more.

A copy of the plan has been posted to the Help Net Security Web site.
