Security incident management is the process of identifying, assessing, and managing threats to a company’s IT infrastructure, both electronic and physical. More specifically, information security issues are not limited to data breaches and can include issues such as a lost or stolen laptop, web application security issues, and attempted malware attacks.
The goal of a security incident management system is to maintain a comprehensive view of your IT infrastructure and to have a cybersecurity incident response plan in place.
As company data sources expand, organizations must have best practices in place to monitor, detect, and efficiently respond to privacy incidents. A successful cybersecurity incident response plan integrates industry standards, which ensure companies are complying with corporate governance requirements as they implement controls.
