Incident response is an organised method to handling the aftermath of a security breach or cyber-attack. This also may be known as an IT, computer, or security “incident”.

It is also important to maintain an incident response team in order to effectively tackle an incident and to prevent it from escalating into a huge problem such as damaging data breach or system collapse.
