Incident Response (IR) teams are designed to detect, investigate and, when necessary, perform remediation in the event of a critical incident. The results of the 2015 SANS Incident Response Survey provides a picture of what IR teams are up against today—the types of attacks they see, what defenses they have in place to detect and respond to these threats, and their perceived effectiveness and obstacles to incident handling.
Some key challenges reported by responders to the survey were:
66% cited a skills shortage as being an impediment to effective IR:
54% cited budgetary shortages for tools and technology
45% noted lack of visibility into system or domain events
41% noted a lack of procedural reviews and practice
37% have trouble distinguishing malicious events from nonevents
