Incident response is typically thought of as the ability for an organization to overcome security events that take place, however, the process of responding to an incident has greatly broadened from a process primarily handled by one's IT department, to one that affects multiple departments, internal processes, and operations. In order to effectively and quickly respond to security incidents, it is imperative for all enterprise communications, tasks, and information exchanges to be identified ahead of time. This ensures that no critical processes that were possibly affected by an incident are overlooked.
The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency has developed a process model for incident management. This model showcases how incident response is not just a process that occurs at the time of a security event. It is an ongoing procedure that confirms that all necessary information is readily available at the time of a security incident
