After reading through this book I passed it to one of my managers and now his team is using it to build incident response plans to various scenarios. This book really does provide a large portion of turnkey plans for any net defense team. I highly recommend this to those who don't already have well established plans, or perhaps are looking to ensure they are up-to-date and inclusive of all necessary topics.

Format: Paperback
This authors do a fantastic job looking all areas needed to develop an appropriate incident response plan including cyber due diligence, writing your plan, incident preparation, plan execution, and post incident planning and maintenance. The quality of the content makes it simple to utilize and to build your own plans. Better to prepare for the inevitable than to play catch up after the fact!

This book is well written. It is good at explaining things about an Incident Response Plan that you might overlook (i.e. having executive buy in). It approaches things realistically without getting bogged down with a bunch of fluff or anecdotal knowledge that does not serve a purpose. Short and to the point! I highly recommend this to anyone starting a security program.
