"In order to perform a successful investigation, you are going to need to have access to different tools in the environment." So says PayPal's Renana Friedlich. Beyond that, Renana suggests to ensure that you know the criteria that you are investigating- number of users impacted, regulatory risk to the company, etc." It's only at that point that an enterprise can consider an incident response container.

An incident response container must be aligned with company processes. Renana notes that it's "absolutely critical from a process perspective to have regular meetings with the provider to make sure that you really see things eye to eye."

Finally, define roles and responsiblities for the best possible relationship moving forward.
