IR and cloud forensics

This section delves into the crucial realm of handling security incidents and conducting digital forensics in cloud environments. IR is the disciplined approach of detecting, managing, and mitigating cybersecurity incidents to minimize their impact on an organization. Within the context of cloud computing, IR becomes even more complex, requiring specialized strategies to address the dynamic nature of cloud resources and distributed data. Cloud forensics, on the other hand, focuses on the collection, preservation, and analysis of digital evidence from cloud platforms to understand the scope and cause of security incidents and support legal investigations. This section explores the fundamental principles of IR, best practices for handling cloud-related incidents, and the tools and techniques used in cloud forensics. Through this knowledge, readers will gain the necessary skills to develop effective IR plans (IRPs) and conduct cloud forensics investigations, bolstering...
