Recovery and maintenance are important processes in incident response. The presence of a response plan before the occurrence of an incidence is beneficial in limiting the damage caused. A response plan aids in reducing the time and costs needed for recovery and maintenance. The recovery process commences by trying to figure out the cause of the incident. For example, after a cyberattack, the recovery process can investigate the cause of the compromise and any lacking security measures that caused the vulnerability. It identifies the nature of the attack, damages or losses incurred, and systems involved amongst others (Whitman et al., 2013). The maintenance phase relies on the information collected during recovery. The first step is carrying out an after-action review to ensure that the incident does not occur again in the future. The next steps should involve repairing or replacing the lost or damaged systems and recording the incident for future reference. What factors determine recovery and maintenance in incident response amongst different team?
Preparation and implementation are elements of disaster recovery that every firm or team should exercise. The two processes are essential in helping an organization or team create an effective disaster recovery plan. Some of the requirements for undertaking preparation and implementation include informed and trained staff, supplies, and planned approaches and procedures. The training of the staff can take place in the preparation stage. During the process, the workers can learn how to get prepared for various disasters. The implementation stage can include the acquisition of supplies after the identification of the needed resources and products to prepare for different disasters (Alfred et al., 2015). The management should collaborate with the workers to achieve this goal. The preparation and implementation processes should include clear goals of the recovery plan so that the management and the employees can work towards meeting it effectively.
