Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Describe what a security incident is considered to be. Document within the characteristics a limited number of impact levels to allow commensurate response. Communicate and distribute this information, or relevant parts thereof, to identified people who need to be notified.
  2. Ensure that security incidents and appropriate follow-up actions, including root cause analysis, follow the existing incident and problem management processes.
  3. Define measures to protect confidentiality of information related to security incidents.
