One of the great things about the TV detective Columbo was that he never made a hasty decision based on first impressions or appearances at a crime scene. It didn't matter how obvious it seemed to be who committed the crime (or how good the frame-up) was: Columbo always dug deeper into motives, opportunities, and methods to uncover who the guilty party was.

Incident response aims to identify, limit, and mitigate an incident. Whether such an occurrence is a security breach or a hardware failure, formulating and continuously strengthening an incident response strategy has become vital for all businesses in the digital age. Your incident response strategy consists of the processes your organization takes to handle incidents—such as network outages and service-impacting bugs—and the steps taken to mitigate incidents.

In IT environments, incidents happen all the time and it's impossible to prevent all of them. Regardless of the available software solutions or the level of technical training of both users and developers, no organization is immune to incidents. The increased dependence on IT infrastructure to provide core services means that any disruption in IT services can cause any organization significant financial and reputational harm. For example, IT service providers need to resolve customer support tickets following the service-level agreements (SLAs), and failing to do so makes them liable for breaching such agreements.

As business systems grow to encompass more locations, tools, and organizations, defining processes that keep pace with these changes can’t be left to a hodgepodge of disconnected programs—or worse, manual implementation of paper documentation. You need to automate. Automation within businesses first arose in the 1960s, alongside resource planning systems.

Most commonly, businesses take a reactive approach to incident management. After all, the concept of incident response seems inherently reactive. However, it is possible—and often necessary—to take more proactive measures. This entails identifying potential problems and taking steps to remediate them before they become incidents.

Cloud services have skyrocketed in popularity in the past few years, providing a vast array of resources as well as a cost-effective path for the migration from on-premises servers to the cloud.

When an incident inevitably occurs, many organizations have a well-prepared incident management team that springs into action. Whether it’s a power outage or security breach, an incident can damage your company’s operations if not handled properly. A strong incident response team is critical to mitigating any negative impacts successfully. Furthermore, once your team resolves the problem, you should initiate a postmortem to detail the incident and record any lessons learned.
