“Computer security incident response has become an important component of information technology (IT) programs. Because performing incident response effectively is a complex undertaking, establishing a successful incident response capability requires substantial planning and resources.”

The excerpt above from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) perfectly underscores the importance of having an effective plan when responding to security incidents. The faster the response, the more managed the risk may be to contain by minimizing the potential scope of exposure. The second half of this equation — the remediation process — will vary greatly depending on the tools available to IT. By aligning with the proper recovery tools, remediation time for compromised systems can be significantly reduced.

By identifying the assets and resources in the enterprise and performing a thorough assessment of possible and potential risks, organizations will be armed with the information required to develop robust response plans for incident handling. Additionally, this information will provide insight into what tools are necessary to manage, monitor and patch endpoints as well as remediate them expeditiously to minimize all forms of loss.
