As we saw in the first chapter, a proper incident response involves a number of individuals from a variety of disciplines. This highlights one of the key misconceptions often held, that incident response is strictly a technology matter. One realm that incident response falls heavily into is the legal arena. There are a number of laws and regulations that directly impact an organization's incident response capability ranging from breach notification to privacy. These laws both provide a framework for governments to prosecute offenders as well as providing strict rules concerning such topics as how evidence is handled and presented in court.
