In today’s connected era, a comprehensive incident response is an integral aspect of any organization aiming to manage and lower their risk profile. A good incident response needs to be useful not only when dealing with incidents caused by malicious threat actors, but should also be applicable in a variety of other situations such as downtime caused by an unexpected power outage or cut internet fiberfra due to roadworks. There are, however, different considerations when it comes to incident response for cloud-based infrastructure and systems, due in part to the nature of its shared responsibility.
Additionally, with a number of incident response standards, frameworks and guidelines available, it could be confusing for cloud providers and users to make sense of them for their cloud incident response (CIR) procedure. CSA’s CIR Framework will serve as a go-to guide for cloud users to effectively prepare for and manage the aftermath of cloud incidents, along with serving as a transparent and common framework for CSPs to share cloud incident response practices with their customers.
This talk will cover key contributions of the CIR Framework to the cloud community, and also make available a Quick Guide that distils the main objectives and overview of the CIR Framework.
