An Incident Responder takes action when a Security incident happens. He/she will have to solve the problem, find the cause of the problem and restore the security measure. Though these are the jobs he/she does when an incident occurs, there are few other tasks of an Incident Responder:

  • Actively monitoring systems and networks for intrusions
  • Identifying security flaws and vulnerabilities in the organization
  • Performing security audits, risk analysis, network forensics and penetration testing
  • Performing malware analysis and reverse engineering
  • Establish protocols for communication within an organization
  • Dealing with law enforcement during security incidents
