Hints for best practices
Don’t just describe good security measures that would be implemented after everything is stable and under control.
What would you do first hour, first day, and so on.Think about the big picture and how you would escalate the issue.
who are your stakeholders? Think about RACI matrix (Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, and Informed)
Who should be notified first?
Would you form your response team?
Collecting and handling evidence investigation
What is the role of digital forensics?
What about backup and restore?
Do you need to restore anything?
Reporting and Documenting? What about your initial incident report?
Would you be segregating some computers and folders from the network?
Would you involve any external government or private agency ?
Think about the process from both management and technical perspectives.
