Strategies and Goals
ConsistencyThe ISO responds to incidents in a consistent manner by documenting both a “high level”planand any related procedures.CommunicationThe ISO communicates and coordinates with all relevant parties during the incident response process. Information is both collected from, and disseminated to, these parties to ensure both security and business needs are met.ComprehensionThe ISO conducts root causeanalysisand uses the resulting data to make enterprise security improvements.

Phases of Incident Response
Education – Partnerships - Solutions
PreparationUnderstandUT Dallas Information Systems and University Data to assess theirpotential risk of compromise. Adequate defenses and monitoring tools should be implemented. Practice exercises should be performed.ResponseThis phase begins upon incident detection. During response, incident analysis is conducted, resulting in both containment and eradication of the incident. Ensure proper recovery of services.ReviewInitiated by having incident responders and other key personnel meet (sometimes involving personnel outside of the ISO). Identify both the successful and problematic parts of the incident response process. Learn how to improve for the future.

Incidents ThatDo Not Need To Be Reported To ISO:
Malware Removed by AutomationMalware is any malicious software, script, or code run on a device that alters its states or function without the owner’s informed consent. Examples include viruses, worms, spyware, keyloggers,and backdoors.Thanks to the deployment of automated scanning and recovery tools, automatic resolution of malware does not need to be shared with the ISO each time it is resolved.Malware Removed ManuallyIn the event that IT professional needed to visit a machine one or more times to resolve malware, this is considered routine operations and does not need to be shared with the ISO each time malware is resolved.EnvironmentalNatural disruptive events, including disruptions to power, water, and environmental systems, are disruptive to the “Availability” objective of the information security profession. However, at UT Dallas these incidents are primarily serviced by Environmental Health & Safety, Police Department, Facilities, and various other specialists on campus. Therefore, they are considered routine operations and do not need to be shared with the ISO each time they occur.
