To help businesses develop incident response procedures, Demisto Tuesday launched an open industry standard to build and share incident response playbooks. Under the new standard, businesses can collaborate and share their own incident response procedures to help build better standards for the industry overall, the company said. Demisto has set up a platform for companies to automate and code the playbooks, as well as allow security analysts to collaborate over Slack.
"While cybercriminals collaborate to attack and steal from organizations, our industry until now has lacked a means for sharing best practices around incident response and community development of playbooks," said Dan Sarel, Demisto co-founder and vice president of product, in a statement. "At Demisto we believe that the only way to combat cybercrime is through collaboration and we are proud to offer today a major step in this direction."
