Cisco Active Threat Analysis is an example of which of the following?
- Coordination centers
- National CSIRT
Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) provide incident response and managed security services to their customers. The Cisco Incident Response Service is an example. Another example is Cisco Active Threat Analysis.
Coordination centers around the world also help CSIRTS coordinate incident handling. They also help coordinate security vulnerability disclosures to vendors, hardware and software providers, and security researchers. One of the best examples is the CERT Division of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI).
Product security incident response teams (PSIRTs) handle the investigation, resolution, and disclosure of security vulnerabilities in their products and services.
A national Computer Security Incident Response Team (national CSIRT) provides cybersecurity protection to an entire country or a significant portion of a national economy, which would include protecting federal civilian or executive branch agencies. CSIRTs provide incident handling capabilities as well as training and coordination of vulnerability databases. Two well-known national CSIRTs are the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Readiness Team (ICS-CERT) and the United States Cyber Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT).
