Continuing IT Training Program

Introduction to Incident Response

Program Overview

This course will delve into key topics relating to: risk/incident definition and categorization analysis, organization and reporting structure, incident response planning and policy development, scenario testing, and training.

Key Objectives

The course will cover essential terminology and concepts related to forming an enterprise incident response team, incident detection, assessment, containment, recovery, and communication.  Participants will come away with a useful field guide stemming from the course and be able to apply this baseline knowledge to better understand and evaluate management’s capability to rapidly and properly respond to a security incident.

As an advanced course, the content is technical in nature, and the course is not meant to provide 'how to' guidance for conducting an IT bank examination.
