Why is there an entire chapter on computer forensics? This book should entirely consist of how to write policy for actions to carry out in the event of a disaster. If an incident involves something that will require forensic intervention, it's usually handed off to the authorities.

There are a couple of things that irked me about the way that Whitman described the incident response planning process. Whitman says that prevention comes before everything else when writing your incident response plan. I have to disagree and say that the first thing you want to find in your incident response plan is the reaction stage which tells you what to do when fecal matter is hitting the proverbial turbine. Then comes containment, then comes the process of correcting and preventing anything from happening again. After that is your plan maintenance, but that is a given.

Good book. Thankfully, I have a great instructor who just so happens to be using it. So, most of it is supplementary. I'd still pick it up and read it. You're bound to learn something useful.

I am taking a graduate course at UMBC in Cybersecurity and this is the first book that I would recommend as a good overall explanation of the field of Incident Response and Disaster Recovery. In a lot of cyber scenarios today, recognition and reaction to an incident is one of the most key aspects in ensuring business continuity. This book covers many of those aspects and will certainly be a text I keep with me through much of my career.

Had to get this book for Uni.Very in depth on IR and DR objectives. Followed my teachers syllabus to letter as well. As far as entertainment value about negative 5 stars but for education it is spot on. I rented the book from Amazon which was a plus as well cause I saved money and hassle trying to return it.

It provided some valuable insite to incident response and contengiency planning which I would be willing to bet a vast majority of organizations are unprepared and do not have one in place. This could serve as a guide on how organizations can be better prepared for disaster, weather natural or man made.

Exactly what I needed for school. Pages a little bent. I didn't mind the highlighted areas. They helped me tremendously with my Final Exam!

This book provides lots of example formats for your DRP and gives solid guidance for how to conduct the DR planning sessions. If you know nothing about DRP/BCP, you might want to read Toigo's book first, but this book will get you started much more quickly.
