ABSTRACT

Computer security incident response is a management activity within the corporate governance framework of a business enterprise, and has become an important component of information technology (IT) programs for IT enabled business establishments. It provides the strategic direction for security activities and ensures objectives are achieved and protects day to day business operations. This research work provides a platform for enlightening and assisting organizations on the awareness and in the establishment computer security incident response capabilities, and also handling incidents efficiently and effectively. This research work also provides guidelines for incident handling, particularly for analyzing incident-related data and determining the appropriate response to each incident. The aim of this work is to propose a guide to and to affirm the relevance of Computer Security Incident Response Management Systems (CSIRMS) in enhancing Business Continuity in IT enabled organizations and institutions, especially financial institutions. This research work also suggests suitable major software requirements for developing a Computer Security Incident Response Management application software.
