This book teaches readers what they need to know to not only set up an incident response effort, but also how to improve existing incident response efforts. The book provides a comprehensive approach to incident response, covering everything necessary to deal with all phases of incident response effectively ? spanning from pre-incident conditions and considerations to the end of an incident.

Although technical considerations, (e.g. the particular binaries in Unix and Linux and dynamically linked libraries in Windows NT and Windows 2000) that need to be inspected in case they are corrupted, the types of logging data available in major operating systems and how to interpret it to obtain information about incidents, how network attacks can be detected on the basis of information contained in packets, and so on ? the major focus of this book is on managerial and procedural matters. Incident Response advances the notion that without effective management, incident response cannot succeed.

Eugene Schultz, founder and former manager of the U.S. Department of Energy's Computer Incident Advisory Capability (CIAC) team, is currently on the support staff of Global Integrity's REACT team?the first commercial incident response capability.
