incident response team, after coming from another division in the

efforts, including but not limited to personnel and team structure,
tools and utilities, and proper procedures.

explain how these systems can assist in the event notification,
determination, and escalation processes.
how the NIST SP800-61, Rev. 1 could assist the personnel in classifying
incidents so each is identified appropriately and the proper
incident-handling procedures are taken.
- Explain how the use of log management systems (e.g., Splunk) could
be a legitimate and useful component of the IR efforts, and describe the
potential issues that could arise if not utilized.5.Use at least three
