Hi Tony,

I would suggest doing some heavy reading first.

Familiarize yourself with what are the recommended best practices, and then tailor to your organization.

Here are a few places for you to start.

National Institute of Standards and Technology: Guide to Incident Handling

Subject: Security Incident Handling / Organization

Hi all,

Recently I posted regarding a possible "Zombie / Botnet" that I
discovered.  Anyway - my company does not have yet any IT security
group - that's why sometimes its quite hard to do incident
handling/analysis.  I am one of the Systems and Network Administrator
and IT security is a subset of our work.   We have lots of remote
offices and we have IT Helpdesk in most of them.

I'm proposing to our company that an IT security group be formed.  For example:

You have a workstation broadcasting abnormal high UDP traffic.  The IT
security group goes in and investigates.  They pull out workstation if
needed be.  IT Helpdesk issues a service unit so that user can
continue working.

Is this correct?  What do you think?  What is the recommended best practice?

Thanks.



Best,
Tony
