Every organization should include an incident response policy as part of its overall business continuity plan. Here are the most important elements to focus on when you build your IRP.
You may not think you need an incident response policy (IRP). After all, you've locked down your organization's network, and you feel reasonably confident that it's well protected. But even the most secure networks need an IRP. If your organization has no established, coherent plan of action, it can easily make the wrong decisions both during and after a security incident. An IRP offers a cool-headed method for dealing with a hot issue.

But although the specifics of an IRP will vary, you'll want to cover certain standard issues. Security expert Mike Mullins offers a list of key areas to focus on, including:
- Defining partner agreements
- Developing an incident team
- Designing an internal communications plan
