Incident Management in Cybersecurity: Best Trends and Practices

With emerging technologies and heavy usage of digitization, the world has been embracing technical advancements without reservation. But as technology makes our life easy, it is very difficult for our data to be safe and secured. 

Cybercriminals are becoming more innovative and developing sophisticated and unrecognizable online/offline threats to our data. Security breaches are rampant; in fact, 65% of security professionals believe they will have to tackle significant violations in the coming times, amounting to a $3.86 million loss. 

Such desperate times only increase the need for professional data security analysts to work and help organizations protect their data and keep it safe. As a result of this technological emergence and booming opportunities, many individuals make cyber security their preferred career choice.

There are multiple online courses for cyber security that can help you become a skillful data security analyst to keep your organization’s data safe and sound. 

When pursuing a career in data security, here are some of the best trends and practices that will help you keep your data security game on top! 

 

  • Make an incident response plan. 

 

You are preparing yourself to keep away from almost every security incident by making an incident response plan. This activity will help you enable and outline procedures for controlling, detecting, and remediating security incidents, which will also keep other employees aware of how to respond to such security events. 

Your incident response plan should be of at least six steps which should consist; 

  • Preparation
  • Identification
  • Containment
  • Elimination
  • Recovery 
  • Post-incident review process

This process will help you prepare a comprehensive incident response and eliminate downtime during emergencies. 

 

  • Develop threat-specific incident response.

 

Not all cyber threats are the same, and you as a data security analyst will have to know how to respond as fast as you can to different threats. Employees will remediate the incidents as quickly as possible and react to them. 

You can also educate your employees about cyber threats by developing a series of incident response playbooks to offer you a glimpse of specific cyber threats and how to control them.  

 

  • Communicate and share knowledge.

 

Communicating and sharing knowledge about the importance of such data threats is one of the most important tasks. You should create a communication plan with a standard action process for employees to act upon the attack. Your goal should also include highlighting the contact person to report a breach and making them understand the roles and responsibilities of every employee. The process and chain of communication also highlight notifying the regulators about past data breaches, which ultimately enhances the protection of the data. 

 

  • Keep it straightforward. 

 

Despite preparing comprehensive and detailed incident response plans, it is essential to note that they should be easy for people to understand. Your employees should know how to manage incidents and respond effectively. It is necessary to keep it simple to be counterproductive and take quick actions. 

 

  • Forensic and functional techniques 

 

This procedure is essential for containment, investigation, reporting, analysis, and real-time observation. It helps promote the evidence collection process and carry out the responsibilities based upon the particular member of the team.

Incident management is one of the most critical topics in cybersecurity. It helps organizations resolve their security incidents faster and more effectively.
