Writing an Incident Handling and Recovery Plan
by William Lynch - Senior Consultant for CTG's Information Security Services Practice - Wednesday, 16 March 2005.
Introduction

While many websites and papers discuss incident handling and incident response plans, aside from RFC 2350 very few of these lay out exactly what an actual plan might look like. The following is an outline of a typical generalized incident handling and response plan for a small to mid-sized organization that doesn't have a dedicated incident response staff. Using this outline as a starting point, the reader will need to adapt sections to his or her organization or industry as necessary and flesh out the plan in detail in order to create an adequate customized plan.
