We also ensure that actionable threat intelligence and reports are shared and received securely to and from our partners.
National Incident Response
Even the best information security infrastructure is not 100% secured from intrusions or other malicious acts. It is critical for an organization to have an effective respond/act to cyber incident. The speed with which an organization can recognize, analyze, and respond to national cyber incidents will limit the damage and lower the cost of recovery. The NCSC Incident Response team can be deployed to conduct a rapid response to contain a cyber security incident and help our partners recover. Our incident response team is comprised of security analysts organized to prevent, analyze and respond to cyber security incidents through multiple functions. The Incident Response team provides an organized approach to address and manage the aftermath of a security breach or attack. The objective is to quickly contain, mitigate, and eradicate threats to minimize the impact of national level incidents.
We improve the cyber security maturity level in the Kingdom by analyzing incidents and their corresponding impact and developing information security strategies, policies and standards that help minimize the risk and impact of a cyber-attack. This includes helping organizations execute scenario driven cyber exercises that focus on assessing the effects on critical systems and data that will have an impact on the operation or mission, guiding organizations as they exercise and assessing capabilities in the realm of cyberspace.
