Incident Response Team (IRT) Policies

Incident Response Team (IRT) Policies

Discussion

Read the following Scenario:

You work for a large, private health care organization that has server, mainframe, and RSA user access. Sean, your manager, has been asked to provide the latest version of the organization’s incident response policy. To his knowledge, no policy exists. He has asked you to research and create an incident response policy over the weekend.

Discussion Requirements

  • Look for at least two incident response policies for organizations of a similar type to your organization. In addition, download NIST “Computer Security Incident Handling Guide, rev2” SP800-61 located at http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-61rev2/SP800-61rev2.pdf.
  • Based on your research, discuss an initial draft of an incident response policy for your organization. Consider HIPAA and other health care-related compliance requirements.
  • Be sure to justify the content you included in the draft policy.
  • Reference your research
