About the Guide
Incident management is an often-debated, frequently misunderstood topic that can quickly befuddle even the most advanced security teams. So to clear things up, we chose not to focus on what we think is right, but rather on what we know has worked for Red Canary and our customers.
This guide is based on “lessons learned” from successes and failures over the years. As your SOC evolves from endpoint to cloud security, we hope that it can create the foundation for a better incident response program than what you have today.
This summary empowers modern enterprises to efficiently handle cybersecurity incidents of all sizes through effective preparation and training. Explore our additional resources to enhance your readiness today.
In this on-demand webinar one of Red Canary’s co-founders breaks down the concept of security readiness and what it means for security teams to be prepared when it comes time to respond to threats, framed by a harrowing real-life scenario.
Just want the highlights from the Incident Response and Preparedness Guide? This TL;DR version of the guide gives you a snapshot of the most pertinent key takeaways we’ve observed—in a format that’s designed to be skimmable.
Our team has developed a fully customizable Incident Response RACI matrix to help you visualize and manage the delegation of responsibilities as they relate to SEV-1 or SEV-2 incidents.
