Assignment 3: Incident Response (IR) Strategic Decisions

Suppose that you have been alerted of a potential incident involving a suspected worm spreading via buffer overflow techniques, compromising Microsoft IIS Web servers. As the IR Team leader, it is your responsibility to determine the next steps.

Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you:

  1. Explain in detail the initial steps that would need to be made by you and the IR team in order to respond to this potential incident.
  2. Construct a process-flow diagram that illustrates the process of determining the incident containment strategy that would be used in this scenario, and identify which containment strategy would be appropriate in this case, through the use of graphical tools in Visio, or an open source alternative such as Dia. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
  3. Construct a process flow diagram to illustrate the process(es) for determining if / when notification of the incident should be relayed to upper management, and explain how those communications should be structured and relayed through the use of graphical tools in Visio, or an open source alternative such as Dia. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
  4. Detail the incident recovery processes for the resolution of this incident.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Summarize the various types of disasters, response and recovery methods.

response teams are well-trained to handle the nature of an incident they are likely to face in a
particular setting. This paper will, therefore, focus on the aspect of incident response and
strategic decision that is attached to a particular incident, recovery steps as well as the
containment strategies.
Buffer overflow attack is initiated wherever a communication is vulnerable in the sense
that the memory allocated to hold particular data gets fed a lot of data with worms or virus...

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
