The Importance of Digital Forensics for Effective Incident Response

The modern Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) understands the importance of incident response in the context of an enterprise risk management strategy. Common strategies to perform a so-called “shift right” transition, with an emphasis on the prevent-detect-respond scale, underscore how critical it has become for CISO-led teams to have effective tools, processes, and procedures to support their incident response programs. Luckily, this new emphasis builds on a mature base. Incident response has been an element of security programs since their inception, and most working professionals understand how to handle an on-going case or exploit incident. What may not have been clear at the outset, but has become evident today, is the critical role that digital forensic investigation capabilities play in assuring that incidents are responded to properly.
