Cloud Incident Response Framework – A Quick Guide
Release Date: 04/21/2020
Working Group: Cloud Incident Response
With the abundance of Cloud Incident Response (CIR) standards, frameworks and guidelines available in the industry, CSA’s Cloud Incident Response Working Group aims to provide a holistic and consistent view across widely used frameworks for the user, be it CSPs or cloud customers. Ultimately, the working group hopes to develop a holistic Cloud Incident Response (CIR) framework that covers the major causes of cloud incidents (both security and non-security related), and their handling and mitigation strategies. The aim is to serve as a go-to guide for cloud users to effectively prepare for and manage the aftermath of cloud incidents, along with serving as a transparent and common framework for CSPs to share cloud incident response practices with their customers.
This Quick Guide distills the main objectives and gives readers an overview of the key contributions and efforts currently underway inside this working group
