Cyber security incident can come with high costs and damages to an organisation who is not prepared for them.
In their simplest way, they can cause downtime, impact business productivity and damage the employee or customer experience. Security is only as effective as the response it generates. An incident that is not responded to in a timely manner can expose your organisation to many issues.
When organisations implement right strategies to cope with these incidents, they achieve faster detection and investigation process. With a well-structured incident management process, even in critical and emergency situations organisations can achieve better results while minimizing possible damages.

The notification or identification that an cyber security incident is occurring can happen in many different ways. Two main of these are;
1) Automatically from specific devices such as an alert from a firewall, automatic review of system or security log files on network. These systems can then notify a mailbox. Kianda platform scans the mailbox and when there is an alert, platform starts the workflow automatically to notify required people and take certain actions.
2) Staff noticing unusual or suspicious activity on the computer system and raising an report via the Kianda platform. This flow starts with a staff raising a security incident when there is a risk of data or security. Following this, system immediately sends alerts to the responsible departments to act upon it. The reason of the incidents, threats or violations, can be distinguished by staff providing required details.
