Emerging trends in Incident Response : SANS 2017 IR whitepaper

Incident Response (IR) teams are designed to detect, investigate and, when necessary, perform remediation in the event of a critical incident. This whitepaper explores the results of the latest SANS survey, providing a picture of what IR teams are up against today.

Some key challenges reported by responders to the survey were:

  • Lack of resources (time, staff, budget) to effectively execute improvements
  • Staffing and skills shortage
  • Vaguely defined processes and owners
  • Budgetary shortages for tools and technology
  • Not enough visibility into events happening across different systems or domains
