If you've never been through an "incident," this is a very good book to have. If you've been through one or two, you might find a few things you've done wrong (or right) and some extra ways to prepare for the next time."

    "The book covers a wide range of topics. The first part of the book introduces the reader to incident response. Chapter 1 walks through an incident response case study. The authors provide a step-by-step account of tracking down a cracker who broke into a server and deleted a database. The case study includes information on tracking down the cracker in question and gathering evidence to have him prosecuted (at the time of the book's printing, the cracker had been prosecuted successfully and was awaiting sentencing). If only 5% of the people who buy this book manage to prosecute a cracker who has tampered with other people's systems, the world will be a better place. "
