Why Incident Response Should Be a Cybersecurity Priority

Security incidents create confusion and stress. Responding to an incident in this environment can be haphazard and ineffective if an organization hasn't carefully planned how it will react. With the right plan, an organization can respond quickly, limiting the damage that attackers are able to inflict. At the CDW Protect SummIT in Philadelphia, we spoke to security experts about how organizations can develop a plan to respond effectively to security incidents. For more videos and articles from the Protect SummIT, visit

  • Many organizations do not have a plan in place for incident response. 
  • Having security solutions deployed can provide actionable intelligence that helps organizations respond. 
  • An incident response plan should define the roles of individuals involved in the response effort, identify points of contact and clearly establish responsibilities.
