Our Mission

IRC is the first non-profit, industry managed and community-driven organization focused on practical customized incident response plan development, operational capabilities and the skills necessary for effective cybersecurity. All organizational levels from C-Suite to Analysts are encouraged to engage in the community. IR’s mission is to ensure that the best practices in incident response skills, playbooks and management are shared amongst the community to improve cybersecurity across all organizational levels. There are too many tools and point solutions that do not result in better security. Cybersecurity has a people and process problem: IRC is here to provide a platform for the cyber community to solve these difficult challenges together and build plans to make us all more secure.
