It starts with definitions which are important if we are to understand and make good use of this standard.

It is important to remember and use this definition because incident response team members often handle sensitive information and sensitive events. So they should not only be skilled and trained. They also need to be trusted to act appropriately in sensitive situations. Next, the standard recalls basic general concepts related to information security management. These concepts are illustrated with a diagram, which, in my opinion, should be printed out and pinned in all IT and information security rooms, because often these notions and concepts are mixed by security personnel.

Definitions of a vulnerability, threat, event and incident are recalled. BTW, ask yourself this question: can I pinpoint the key difference between a vulnerability and a threat? Or between event and incident? It is important to see incident response not as an IT process or IT security process. It should be seen as a process that helps sustain bloodstream of business operations. It is also a good practice to mention that during internal meetings and trainings of the incident response team.

In terms of information processing security, incident management can and should be used to eliminate as many vulnerabilities uncovered by incidents as possible. But please remember that vulnerability management is not the main task of an incident response team. But any non-critical incident-related vulnerability management should be passed to information security team and become a part of the information security management process.

Objectives are future-related. Their goal is to minimize the probability of similar incidents occurring in future and generally, to minimize the number of incidents in future. Some of these benefits are obvious for cybersecurity practitioners. I will not discuss all of these benefits here, but I would like to share with you my thoughts on a couple of them. Why and how proper incident management can help focus on prevention? We often see incident management as a reactive activity, so correlating it to prevention might sound counterintuitive.

But this depends on whether we learn from incidents and treat incident management as a linear or cyclic activity. It is even better to try to minimize the risk of occurrence of the whole class of similar incidents. For example, if the incident response team has contained specific incident related to USB drives e.

Consequently, information security incidents are bound to occur to some extent, even in organizations that take their information security extremely seriously. The standard covers the processes for managing information security events, incidents and vulnerabilities. It cross-references that section and explain its relationship to the ISO27k eForensics standards. The standard provides template reporting forms for information security events, incidents and vulnerabilities.
