What is Incident Management?

Cybersecurity incident management is the real-time process of identifying, managing, monitoring and analyzing computer and network security threats or incidents (which may include anything from attempted intrusions to successful compromises/data breaches) and responding appropriately. Incident management makes use of both technical and human assets in analyzing and responding to threats. Response teams adhere to established processes and a designated incident coordinator manages the organization’s response to breaches and other security incidents.
