What is NIST SP 800-61?

NIST SP 800-61 is a guidebook provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology that helps organizations, regardless of their size, properly respond to computer security incidents, such as a DDOS attack, a data breach or a malware infection. It includes information on the following topics:

  1. Organizing a Computer Security Incident Response Capability

  2. Handling an Incident

  3. Coordination and Information Sharing

By thoroughly understanding the information in this guide, you will be prepared to handle an incident before it happens. It will show you how to create plans, policies and procedures for handling incidents. It will further show you how to both detect and analyze attacks, and it will give you the wherewithal to not only contain these attacks but also eliminate them.

Understand that it's not a question of if you'll face a computer security incident, but when. With knowledge of NIST SP 800-61, you will be able to handle any incident that comes your way.
