Incident Response in ValueMentor MDR-SOC is a six-step process
Advanced preparation is important when planning for a potential incident. Policies and procedures should be known and tested by management and all personnel to ensure that the recovery and remediation process will quickly address any and all incidents in a timely manner, resulting in the least amount of damage.
After the incident occurs, it’s important to ask yourself a number of questions. What kind of incident has occurred? Data theft? Insider threat? Network attacks? Once you’ve identified the type of incident that has occurred, it’s important to determine the severity of the incident in order to choose the best course of action according to your predetermined Incident Response Policy and Procedures.
In order to limit the impact of an incident, the containment phase of incident response is critical. The faster the response time, the more likely it will be that you can reduce the damage of the particular incident. This may mean isolating the infected or compromised area to determine the best way to handle recovery.
At this stage, it’s time to resolve the issue and remove any malicious code, threat, personnel responsible for the incident, etc. Forensic analysis should be completed and logs kept throughout the remediation process.
At this point, it’s time to get things back up and running and be sure that all company policies and procedures are effectively being implemented. Continuous, ongoing monitoring is important following remediation of an incident to be certain that it has been fully resolved and nothing threatening is lingering in your network. Continuous monitoring will also detect any suspicious behaviour going forward.
Compiling a detailed report of what happened and what was done as corrective measures is a good step towards ensuring the same incident will not occur again.
