This 1-day course is designed for managers and project leaders who have been tasked with implementing a computer security incident response team (CSIRT). This course provides a high-level overview of the key issues and decisions that must be addressed in establishing a CSIRT. As part of the course, attendees will develop an action plan that can be used as a starting point in planning and implementing their CSIRT.
The course is composed of lectures and class exercises. Participants will learn the requirements for establishing an effective CSIRT, the various organisational models for a CSIRT, the variety and level of services that can be provided by a CSIRT, and the types of resources and infrastructure needed to support a team. Additionally, attendees will identify policies and procedures that should be established and implemented when creating a CSIRT.
Attendees may also want to register for the three-day companion course, Managing Computer Security Incident Response Teams, which is scheduled immediately following this course.
