REPORT AN INCIDENT
In general, responding to computer security incidents, such as theft of personal data, is not a simple matter. Incident management and response activities require technical knowledge, communication, and coordination among personnel who respond to the incident. Although incident management may vary in approach depending on the situation, response goals are constant. Accordingly, the goals of the Wright State University Computer Incident Response and Management Plan (PDF) are:
- Helping affected entities recover quickly and efficiently from security incidents.
- Minimizing the impact due to the loss or theft of information or disruption of critical computing services when incidents occur.
- Responding, systematically, following proven procedures, that will dramatically decrease the likelihood of reoccurrence.
- Balancing the operational and security requirements within realistic budgetary constraints.
