SEC10-BP01 Identify key personnel and external resources

Identify internal and external personnel, resources, and legal obligations that would help your organization respond to an incident.

When you define your approach to incident response in the cloud, in unison with other teams (such as your legal counsel, leadership, business stakeholders, AWS Support Services, and others), you must identify key personnel, stakeholders, and relevant contacts. To reduce dependency and decrease response time, make sure that your team, specialist security teams, and responders are educated about the services that you use and have opportunities to practice hands-on.

We encourage you to identify external AWS security partners that can provide you with outside expertise and a different perspective to augment your response capabilities. Your trusted security partners can help you identify potential risks or threats that you might not be familiar with.

Level of risk exposed if this best practice is not established: High

Implementation guidance

  • Identify key personnel in your organization: Maintain a contact list of personnel within your organization that you would need to involve to respond to and recover from an incident.

  • Identify external partners: Engage with external partners if necessary that can help you respond to and recover from an incident.
