This document introduces the basics of incident response on a high level. Key challenges are identified on the typical issues that slow incident response mechanisms, and proposes ways to address these challenges, and enhance incident handling cooperation while taking into consideration the overview of cyber threats and emerging trends.
Among its objectives of incident response is to identify the requirements and issue recommendations on sharing cyber threat information which are appropriate for incident management processes to prevent and best respond to cyber incidents. The work builds on previous work undertaken by ENISA in the field of CSIRT and CIIP.

About NIS platform: The Network and Information Security (NIS) Platform was created in 2013 as part of the Cybersecurity Strategy of the European Union and aims to help EU stakeholders carry out appropriate risk management, establish good cyber security policies and processes and further adopt standards and solutions that will improve the ability to create safer market conditions for the EU. The expert work of the NIS Platform was divided into Working Groups (WGs), all dealing with a specific field of expertise in cyber security establishing three WGs: (1) WG1 on risk management; (2) WG2 on information exchange and incident coordination; (3) WG3 on secure ICT research and innovation.
