CSIRT is a short form for Computer Security Incident Response Team. This is an organization that helps IT companies, businesses, government organizations, institutions, universities, and others which handles computer operations to resolve the issues of security breaches, cyber-attacks, etc. CSIRT organization protects the data from hackers by analyzing the problem. There are several employees formed as a team in CSIRT to reach out to many users for resolving their problems. If any problem occurred in an organization, they take up the issue to the team and the team analyzes the reports and resolves the problem quickly (Kácha, 2010).

CSIRT organization hires people who have problem-solving skills, listening skills, focus, and communication skills and they are categorized into three main groups of services. The CSIRT would include all the issues and would maintain the best team for having the best organization and maintain the success further and include working with IT or other organizations to make secure or compact systems and the CSIRT will have various training teams for training the employees. . CSIRT helps to handle the incidents by determining the nature of the incident. They will understand the technical cause of the incident and identify other threats resulting from an incident. Later, they recommend the solutions by researching about the incident properly. A CSIRT also recommends solutions like security configurations, strategies to protect the data and network (Horne, 2014).

It is extremely helpful for an organization to recruit a CSIRT team to avoid vulnerable attacks. Each and every organization is facing problems regarding data destruction, fear of cyber-attacks, hackers accessing the personal or organizational systems. A CSIRT team helps in the timely resolution of problems and gives security measures to prevent future attacks. CSIRT organizations need to build their team very carefully and effectively to be a successful CSIRT. The team should be a friendly team. Each and every team member should understand the roles and responsibilities to work effectively. There should be an executive for the CSIRT organization who can communicate the impact of the incident to the team and as well as to the board members. He also has the responsibility to cross-check the response they need to give for the incident. There should be an incident manager to find and understand the incidents before he communicates to incidents to the company. Like this, there are several other components that help in building an effective CSIRT team (Marthie, 2010).
