Data Security Glossary

No matter what your role is within an organization, this data security glossary is intended for anyone from the security leader to the security practitioner.

Incident response

Incident response is the process of investigating and minimizing the damage of a data breach, then putting in measures to reduce the likelihood of a similar incident in the future. Organizations can lessen the impact of a data breach by creating an incident response plan ahead of time and leveraging tools like DSPM to enforce data security policies and DDR to monitor activity.
