Secure response is a structured methodology for handling security incidents, breaches and cyber threats.


  • Secure Response Video — 00:34:15
    • This video shows how to respond to security incidents during the code’s lifecycle with a proper response plan that reduces the risks of more attacks.


Course description

A well-defined incident response plan allows you to effectively identify, minimize the damage and reduce the costs of a cyberattack while fixing the cause to prevent future attacks. It is the interface for external customers and security researchers to report security problems in products. Secure release occurs when all the security activities are confirmed against the final build and the software is sent to customers or made available for download.
