What is CIRT (Cyber Incident Response Team)?

A CIRT (Cyber Incident Response Team) is a dedicated team of experts responsible for responding to cybersecurity threats such as data branches and virus infections. Once an incident occurs, a CIRT's goal is to isolate the attacked system, regain control, minimize damage, and remove the danger. A CIRT can either be an in-house team or an outsourced group of experts.
